Advancement Team

The Sacred Heart Greenwich community comes together powerfully to support our mission to educate and empower students to pursue excellence, build courage and confidence, and lead lives of purpose and integrity. Thank you for your partnership and generosity!  

When I meet members of our community, the title of my role comes up, followed by the logical question, “What is Advancement?” I describe my main role and that of my team as strengthening the commitment to the mission with a strategic and integrated approach. We always want to move forward as an institution. 

If you think about the way most non-profits run, the Advancement team focuses on community engagement, business development, communications, and fundraising.

Celebrating Community Connection

I am drawn to Sacred Heart Greenwich because community is a cornerstone of our shared experience. We are so grateful for the vital partnerships with the Parents' and Alumnae Associations and, more broadly, for the engaged culture and emotional bonds which allow everyone to contribute actively and form lifelong connections with our beloved school. 

Your dynamic participation - as a volunteer, a parent or alumnae ambassador, a business partner, or through philanthropy and gifts to the Fund for Sacred Heart - enables us to support the girls of today while driving the School forward for the girls of tomorrow. 

Your generosity makes transformative opportunities possible: Living our Mission programs, innovations on campus inside and beyond the classroom, expert faculty, scholarships and tuition assistance, and the recent facilities such as our renovated Lower School art room, Tiger's Den, playgrounds, and athletic facilities are all examples of how gifts support our girls!

Please contact us anytime with ideas or questions on how you can get involved in this exciting work in general, or about Fund for Sacred Heart in specific. We look forward to exploring with you the many wonderful ways you may seek to support the mission of Sacred Heart Greenwich.
