Parent Fund

It’s an exciting time to be part of the SHU family. The more parents who give each year, the greater our collective impact will be. Together, we can ensure that Sacred Heart and current Pioneers continue to excel will into the future.

SHU Students Volunteering

Because of support from parents like you, Sacred Heart University can provide every Pioneer with a transformative education. Today, your child is benefiting from new state-of-the-art facilities, a diverse and inclusive community, and educational experiences focused on successful career outcomes. Rooted in the Catholic and contemporary liberal arts traditions, we are committed to the personal and academic growth of your child, and we also know that your involvement as a parent is critical to their success.

The Parent Fund is a new philanthropic opportunity that enables you to invest in the minds, programs, and resources that elevate the educational experience at SHU. Gifts to the Student In ClassParent have an immediate impact on important needs like student financial aid, classroom equipment, guest speaker series, and so much more.

Annual gifts of all sizes help advance initiatives that are critical to our mission—and help us remain one of the most innovative Catholic universities in the Northeast. Parents who make annual gifts of $1,000 or more become members of the President’s Leadership Society with benefits that include invitations to special events and program and recognition on SHU’s annual Donor Honor Roll.
