Selection Process

Procedure for choosing charities for donations:

If a member of the Sacred Heart community becomes aware of a deserving cause which they feel is worthy of our support, the following procedure must be followed:

  1. Research the charity. Consider the percentage of donations that is spent on the administration of the charity and how much money goes to the intended beneficiaries.
  2. Write a proposal motivating why this cause should be considered, including all relevant information, such as the percentage that reaches the needy.
  3. Submit a proposal to the Administration before making a commitment to the organization.

All funds raised for charitable organizations must be paid to the MS/HS assistant who keeps a record of all donations made.
