The 2020-21 Holy Angels Annual Fund

The 2020-21 Holy Angels Annual Fund

Give Now

Holy Angels cannot provide the access and excellent programs without the ongoing support of donors like you.  During these challenging times, please consider renewing your support for what we do on a daily basis - changing students’ lives and sharing in God’s message of love, charity and service. 

Academy of Holy Angels Leadership has identified two main funding priorities for the year. They are:

  1. Support the 2020-21 Annual Fund and the new and increased need of our families during the time of COVID-19.
    Because many of our families experienced furloughs, reduced hours, and lost positions, AHA provided nearly $300,000 in additional financial aid this school year (a 10% increase).  We are asking our donors to partner with us, so we can continue to provide access and share the AHA education with as many students as possible. 
  2. Construct a new Innovation Center (iCenter) for STEM Education through a complete remodel of the Convocation Center’s third floor.
    Finalize the funding and commence construction on this final project identified as a priority in the Our Call: To Lead & Serve capital campaign. This exciting new space will be comprised of a new state-of-the-art science lab, three additional classrooms, and a new Welcome Area for student gatherings. The light-filled, flexible, and professional design will encourage collaboration, student-led research, and creativity.

We hope you will prayerfully consider contributing in any level you can. One of the ways you can support our Stars is by participating in the November 19 AHA Give Day.

AHA GIVE DAY is November 19!

We are excited for our upcoming GIVE DAY where it is tradition for the AHA community to join together to raise funds for our most important funding needs. Please consider making your annual gift on or before this big day!

Alumni Support!

The objective of the 2018-20 We Are Holy Angels! Alumni Challenge was to increase alumni financial support in order to allow the school to serve more students and more effectively.  In 2018-19 AHA Alumni responded with enthusiasm going from 900 donors to 1200 alumni total donors - a 28% increase!  In 2019-20 alumni total giving was up by over 35%.  Thank you alums!

We are hoping that once again, AHA can count on its alumni and their incredible generosity in 2020-21!

Here are some of the specific areas where the Annual Fund supports AHA’s goals:

  • Great College Prep

An excellent curriculum, talented teachers and exceptional college planning support prepare students to succeed in college
  • Faith and Service

Daily Theology classes and a four-year commitment to service help students learn about God and how to serve him better.
  • Rich Activities

Students choose from nearly 70 sports, clubs and activities, making friends and learning valuable life and team-building skills.
  • Community that Cares

Small class sizes and multiple activities means that students have opportunities to connect with adults and make life-long friends.
