Annual Fund

Your Generosity At Work

The Annual Fund is Sacred Heart Cathedral School’s most important fundraising campaign. A gift to the Annual Fund enriches programs and projects necessary to maintain our high level of excellence.

Providing outstanding educational, spiritual, art, and athletic experiences at SHCS requires funding beyond tuition. The financial resources necessary to support the wide range of academics and activities are substantial. Your contribution in any amount plays a significant role in maintaining our high level of excellence. Thank you for supporting Catholic education at SHCS. Give Today!

How To Make A Gift/Donation

There are several options! You can make a one-time gift or pledge now for later payment (by June 30). You may pay by cash or check. You may also make recurring payments throughout the school year. Donations are accepted via Sacred Heart’s WeShare website.

2022-2023 Annual Fund Parent Chairs

Dear Sacred Heart Community,

We are so honored to be the chairs of the 2022-2023 Annual Fund Campaign. We have been part of the Sacred Heart Cathedral Community since we moved to Knoxville 10 years ago. Danna is a Knoxville native, but we immediately found our home at Sacred Heart. The close-knit community, activities, and wonderful school mean everything to our family. Marlee (5th grade) first started at Sacred Heart in the preschool, where we immediately experienced the teacher’s love for our children. As our family grew, Easton(2nd grade), Ky(1st grade), and Brodie (Kindergarten) all experienced the blessings of our school.

We love being part of a school community where faculty and staff celebrate and walk our Catholic Faith with our children and us during the entire week. This is so apparent on Sunday when we see our principal, faculty members, as well as our children’s teachers at Mass
celebrating alongside us. This warms our hearts in so many ways and lets us know that we are in the right place and want to continue to invest our time, talent, and treasure into this thriving culture and faith community.

Sacred Heart Cathedral School’s fundraising includes both the auction and the annual fund. These are two separate campaigns. The donations received through the auction typically go to specific school projects, like the gym, while the Annual Fund raises the money that keeps our
school running day-to-day. The Annual Fund helps bridge the school’s needs throughout the year, including the tuition gap. We want to complete our gym renovations, but we still need funds to ensure we can continue providing for the educational and spiritual growth of our children. Simply put, this is the money we must have to make the school run.

We are hoping for 100% participation from all of our families this year. Even if each family could just make a small donation, those donations would really add up and make a difference for our school. We know that each of you gives a lot to our school, and every dollar is appreciated. Please consider sharing this campaign with your family, friends, or anyone willing to support a Catholic education. Please join us in our mission to generously support our school’s Annual Fund campaign. Our goal this year is 100% participation from each family at our school.

No gift is too small or too big. All funds raised during this campaign will go directly toward our children’s education. Any size donation makes a difference in helping educate and prepare our students for success in the classroom and as disciples of Christ. Thank you for your past gifts and for your participation in this year’s campaign. May God bless you and your families for your continued support and commitment to Sacred Heart Cathedral School. The generosity of our community never ceases to amaze us, and I know once again, you will answer this call to charity.

With Love,

The Shepherd Family
Jess, Danna, Marlee, Easton, Ky & Brodie
