The Annual Fund

About the Annual Fund
The Annual Fund sustains Carrollton's commitment to quality education. As with most independent schools, Carrollton's Annual Fund plays a critical role in supporting our annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year.  Annual Fund gifts impact all aspects of a Carrollton education, including professional growth opportunities for faculty and staff, enhancements to our various educational programs, resources for athletics, maintenance of our two beautiful campuses and financial aid for qualifying girls and young women, who without it would not be able to attend Carrollton.  We rely on gifts from current and past parents, alumnae, trustees, faculty and staff, grandparents and friends to help us continue to strive for excellence in Sacred Heart education.  

The greatest gift my parents ever gave me was the gift of a Sacred Heart education. Unlike gifts that have a limited time or use, this gift did not end when I graduated from Carrollton, in truth it began. In my case, it has journeyed with me through my college and law school years, my marriage, raising my two daughters, my demanding career, and my day to day life. It is a gift that has shaped each one of us who availed ourselves of its benefits into who we are today- women of courage, confidence and compassion. Women that are driven to make positive changes in our ever so complex world. It is a powerful gift that comes with great responsibility.
