Gifts of all sizes have a major impact on the success of our students and school. There are many ways to support Ursuline.
Please consider which gift option best suits you.
Hartnett Hall is the new “heart” of Ursuline Academy, joining Merici and Brescia Halls and providing elevator access to all levels of the campus. Four new labs offer state-of-the-art educational space for studying the physical and life sciences. Studio flooring and an elevated ceiling will take dance and cheer to new heights. Custom acoustic design offers choral and instrumental students a more true sound. But while the building itself may be complete, retirement of the construction debt is not. Click HERE to learn more about the building, its supporters and how you can serve our students of today and tomorrow.
The auction is Ursuline's largest fundraiser and there are many ways to get involved - join the planning committee, donate items, purchase a catalog ad, become a sponsor, attend the auction, or volunteer before, during or after. Click HERE to find out more.

Tuition and fees cover 87% of the entire cost of an Ursuline education. Gifts made to the Ursuline Fund by parents, grandparents, parents of alumnae, and friends provide the margin of excellence which makes a real difference for every girl, every day. LEARN MORE
Alumnae annual giving provides tuition assistance to students who would not otherwise be able to attend Ursuline Academy. Scholarships are awarded from this fund through the generosity of our alumnae. Over 20% of students at UA receive tuition assistance from this fund. GIVE NOW
Matching gifts can double your gift! Does your employer offer a matching gift program? Many companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your employer offers a matching gift program click HERE or contact your human resources department. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Ursuline's patron, St. Angela Merici, graces the school piazza as the focal point on the Ursuline back campus. Commemorative bricks and pavers line the pathways surrounding St. Angela as well as in the Tapestry Garden nestled along Merici Hall. You can share in this opportunity to have your name be a permanent part of the Ursuline landscape while also being a part of our future. Click HERE for details.
Ursuline Academy has an excellent and comprehensive Planned Giving Program for alumnae, families and friends who want to help secure the long term future of our school by utilizing gifting strategies that will benefit both the school and themselves. Planned gifts often consist of gifts of assets rather than checks or cash. READ MORE
Our parents sacrificed to give us the gift of quality Catholic education, for which we're grateful. Having benefitted from their foresight, we felt it was important to provide a similar foundation and experience for our own daughters. We support Ursuline so UA can continue educating and forming our daughter, as well as many others, to become unique, caring young women, confident in their abilities and potential.
We support UA because UA has supported us. Over the course of our three daughters' education, there have been times when we've needed UA to help us, above and beyond what a typical student might require. UA, through it's teachers, coaches and administrators, has done everything it can to make sure our daughters had the best chance to succeed and enjoy a rewarding high school experience. UA is like family. They've always supported us and we're pleased to support them.
