Whether you roamed the halls of the Academy of the Sacred Heart, the Academy, or Hardey Prep as a student, parent, grandparent or friend, you know that the power of a Sacred Heart education can be transformational. St. Madeleine Sophie Barat’s vision, formed in 1800 and brought to Chicago in 1876, is increasingly relevant in today’s world. The Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart Schools – faith, intellect, service, community, and personal growth – are woven throughout our rigorous classical education, inspiring generations of children and families to rebuild, renew, and transform society as they grow and move forward in life.

Making a planned gift to Sacred Heart Schools is a lasting and thoughtful way to ensure that the gift of Sacred Heart education remains vital and relevant for future generations of children and families. We have established the Society of 1876 to honor donors who have included Sacred Heart Schools in their estate plans.

A planned gift or bequest to Sacred Heart Schools can support scholarships, faculty development, curricular programming, capital needs, or you can allow your gift to fund the school’s priorities as determined by administrators and Trustees. By consulting with the appropriate professionals and discussing your charitable intentions with us, we can help you leave a lasting legacy to Sacred Heart Schools and the future of education on Sheridan Road.

For more information about the Society of 1876, or if you have a question about making a planned gift to Sacred Heart, please contact Alexandra Voigt, Development Director, at 773.681.8410 or via e-mail.
