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 5 years, the Future Founders giving circle has invested just over $270,000 in impactful gifts to the school including: the SynDaver, Star Lab, TriCaster, TriCaster Extension, and most recently, the Fitness Center Upgrade and Outdoor Musical Instruments for the Lower School Playground. This wonderful group of women made these selections because of the passion demonstrated by our presenters in each of their areas.
RECENT FUTURE FOUNDER PROJECTS:
Fitness Center Upgrade: Upgraded equipment that better serves students in pursuit of lifelong habits of health and wellness.
Musical Garden: Outdoor musical instruments that upgrade the Lower School play yard to a place of outdoor learning and play.
TriCaster: Complete video production system with an entire suite of production capabilities for video editing, audio and sound mixing and graphics.
SynDaver: A synthetic human body replica used for learning in biology, physiology and physical education.
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.
