Future Founders.
Your Voice Is Our Future.

What is Future Founders?
As a Sacred Heart alumna, your partnership and active involvement are critical to the future and viability of our school. Future Founders is a great opportunity for alumnae who want to play a pivotal role in the future of the Rosary.

Over the last 6 years, the Future Founders giving circle has invested just over $345,000 in impactful gifts to the school including: the SynDaver, Star Lab, TriCaster, TriCaster Extension and the Fitness Center Upgrade and Outdoor Musical Instruments for the Lower School Playground. Most recently this group supported the creation of an outdoor classroom (amphitheater) and an Innovation Lab on the Lower School campus.

This wonderful group of leaders made these selections because of the passion demonstrated by our presenters in each of their areas.

Lower School Innovation Lab: A new dedicated space for design thinking and STEM learning integrated with the Mater campus curriculum.

Outdoor Classroom: New amphitheater space to diversify learning environments and bring teaching outside.

Musical Garden: Outdoor musical instruments that upgrade the Lower School play yard to a place of outdoor learning and play.

Fitness Center Upgrade: Upgraded equipment that better serves students in pursuit of lifelong habits of health and wellness.

How does Future Founders work?
Future Founders allows up to 100 alumnae to pool their knowledge, resources and additional giving to fund a single, visionary capital project at our school each year.

Future Founders members are invited to participate in this leadership giving circle with an annual contribution of $1,100—which is in addition to their annual giving contribution. The funds from Future Founders members will be pooled to create a capital fund of up to $100,000, the direction of which will be decided by the majority of this group through a voting process.
