Only through your generosity, whether you’re a parent, alumna,
board member, grandparent, or friend, will we reach our goals.

Cornelia Connelly’s mission and legacy was to create institutions in which students could grow intellectually and as people of faith and service.


We strive to keep Cornelia’s mission at the core of all we do at Holy Child.


Holy Child’s fundraising initiatives allow the school to continue in our tradition of ensuring that students have access to outstanding programs – from academics and extracurriculars to athletics and fine arts.

We ask the members of our community to invest in our young women and make Holy Child a philanthropic priority.


The Fund for Holy Child, or Annual Fund, provides immediate resources for educational enrichment, professional development, curriculum and technology enhancement, and campus maintenance.


We also seek funding for current use scholarships and facility upgrades, which are differentiated from the Annual Fund through designated initiatives: Innovate the Space and Fund Forward.


Fund Forward invites our community to invest in future Holy Child young women through tuition assistance, creating life-changing opportunities.


Innovate the Space revolutionizes our classrooms into spaces designed to facilitate critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication to shape our students into bold female leaders of the future.
