Support Sacred Heart Cathedral School

The mark of any great school is a strong Annual Fund both in dollars raised and community participation. Our ability to provide each Sacred Heart student with the best possible educational experience depends on the continued generosity of parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, alumni, friends, corporations and foundations.

There are many ways in which you can help advance Catholic education at Sacred Heart. Gifts can be in Cash or Check, via WeShare, Stock, Planned Gifts, Matching Gifts, or Gifts-In-Kind.

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is our school’s most important fund-raising campaign and we ask every member of our community to participate with a contribution of any amount. Gifts immediately enhance our educational program by funding expenses not covered by tuition. When you make an unrestricted gift to the SHCS Annual Fund, you support the area of greatest need at the current time. Every tax-deductible donation you make to the Annual Fund empowers Sacred Heart to challenge and engage students, encourage and support innovation in the classroom, enrich the arts and strengthen athletics, provide professional development opportunities for our faculty, and undertake facility improvements. Thank you for supporting the mission of Sacred Heart Cathedral School. ~ Beth Robertson | Director of Development | brobertson@shcknox.org | 865.558.4136

Rewards Programs

You can also support SHCS through things you are already doing, like shopping at Amazon, Kroger, Food City, and Crown Cleaners. These retailers have generously allowed shoopers to name Sacred Heart Cathedral School as the recipient of donations from your purchases.  Next time you shop, be sure to link your accounts to SHCS!

Additionally, we receive funds through Box Tops 4 Education.  Send these labels from food and household items to school and we will receive a biannual contribution from the program.

Lastly, anytime you consume a Coca-Cola product, simply scan or enter the code from your beverage on their website and name Sacred Heart Cathedral School your school of choice.  We will receive a donation from Coca-Cola every time you enjoy one of their refreshing beverages!

The Calendar Raffle

As part of the Diocese of Knoxville’s ongoing efforts to support Catholic education, Sacred Heart Cathedral School and the other schools in the diocese are participating in a Calendar Raffle. For only 10 cents a day, you can support Catholic education in our area and receive a beautifully assembled calendar that features all the schools in our diocese. You receive not only the calendar itself (a wonderful gift and practical item for a home) but with each calendar purchased you will be entered into 365 raffles.  Each order form has a unique ID number that also serves your raffle ticket. On January 3rd, all 365 tickets totaling $50,000 in cash prizes will be drawn and you will have the opportunity to win between $100 and $500 for every calendar ordered and form returned. 

Please be sure that your order form specifies Sacred Heart Cathedral School.  You may return the order forms to the school office or mail them directly to the school (711 S Northshore Drive, Knoxville, TN 37919).  Orders are due by October 31st, and calendars will be mailed in early December.  The calendar price is $36.50 or 3 for $100. For every calendar purchased on behalf of SHCS, $15 goes directly to the school and the balance goes to the Knoxville Catholic Schools Regional Operating Fund to provide much-needed financial aid to families.
