The joy that springs from living our faith and values strengthens all of us. And it is all made possible by you.

Holy Child is continually sustained in its mission by generous gifts from its community of families, alumnae, faculty and friends. Through the contributions of many, the school energizes young women with its deep commitment to their intellectual, spiritual, artistic, physical and social growth.  
Your gifts are essential to support this inspired and inspiring community in which girls of different faiths and backgrounds challenge themselves to achieve their highest potential. 

There are many ways to support Holy Child, today and in the future. Together we will move forward with our founding vision to “meet the wants of the age” through a dynamic and personal Catholic education in which joy is a catalyst for growth and the foundation for strength.

Supporting those who need it is what we do. 
Our annual spring gala is an opportunity for our entire community to come together to celebrate in support of Scholarship at Holy Child.

Endowed & 

Restricted Giving 

Staying up to date and current is no small task. 
Characterized by their transformative nature, these gifts advance the strategic priorities of the school, meeting the needs of our community today, and building the financial foundation for future generations of Holy Child students.

I am grateful to Holy Child for providing my daughters with a well-rounded experience that will guide them throughout their lives. The ability to comprehensively debate from both sides of a problem, the rigorous pursuit of knowledge, and the passion to explore new interests successfully allow them to be critical thinkers and meaningful contributors to society.

Mayfield Society

Donors making gifts of $5,000 and above to the Fund for Holy Child are members of the Mayfield Society (young alumnae within 20 years of graduation may join the Mayfield Society with gifts of $1,500). Mayfield Society members help to inspire a culture of philanthropy and sustain Cornelia Connelly’s vision of educational excellence which meets the want of the age. Together these gifts make up over 55% of our total annual giving support and are crucial to the success of every student. 

In appreciation for their generosity Mayfield Society members are invited to the Head of School Recognition Dinner in the fall and the Leadership Donor Reception in the spring.
