The Annual Fund is Ursuline’s largest fundraiser, supporting its operating needs throughout the year. This appeal helps fund all aspects of an Ursuline education, including hiring and retaining excellent faculty, providing strong academic programs, financial aid, and co-curricular activities.
At Ursuline, we often talk about “the gap” or the silent scholarship that each student receives. The gap is the difference between tuition and the actual cost to educate one student. Along with the other fundraisers throughout the year, Annual Fund gifts help close the gap. Ursuline is blessed to count alumnae, past and current parents, Board of Trustees members, faculty and staff, and other friends, as contributors to the Annual Fund. Annual Fund gifts are tax-deductible.
Many companies offer a matching gifts program to support their employees’ philanthropy. Please check with your company to see if a match is offered.
