The Neil T. Coakley Scholarship Fund

The Neil T. Coakley Scholarship Fund was established by his loving wife, Gerry Coakley, to benefit students who welcome the challenge of a strong academic program, but have learning styles that challenge their ability to access curriculum in conventional ways. Several students have already benefited from the program and Holy Child looks forward to more young women having the opportunity to benefit from our school’s Academic Support in the future. Holy Child’s Academic Support office provides:


  • One-on-one and group study skills sessions

  • Individual, custom-tailored tutoring on academic subjects

  • Individual academic advising

  • Classes on study skills and organizational skills

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company (or your spouse’s company) has a matching gift policy, please enter the employer’s name below.

If the company matches, you may be able to access the form directly through the search. Follow the set procedure, and Holy Child will be happy to assist you and answer your questions. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled!

Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
