Dear Holy Names Community,
For over 150 years, Holy Names High School has ensured that every young woman has access to a top-tier education, regardless of her ability to pay. That sacred calling has never been more important and we need your help.
We have developed the HNHS Emergency Response Fund to support students and families experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 and to ensure our normal operations can continue during the health closure.
Our students need you, and the need is great. Normally, we would raise $180,000 between now and the end of the school year through our spring fundraiser (Boots & BBQ and Taste of Tuscany) and traditional appeals. We need your donation, no matter the amount, to help us raise this goal, and keep school life as steady and routine as possible during these uncertain times.
With your help we can do this. We realize that many in our community have been financially impacted by the economic downturn. We are asking you to be the safety net for our students. Please give what you can and feel confident that your donation is making a direct impact on our students. We are keeping a lean and conservative budget, pursuing grant and federal support options, and ensuring our faculty and staff remain employed and available to our students.
We are incredibly proud of our students, who are resilient and determined to continue their studies. Even now, our seniors are receiving college admissions packets at home and staying focused on finishing their senior year and advancing to college. They are missing many of the treasured senior traditions, and yet they reach out to fellow students to check in and make sure everyone is connected and supported. That is HNHS sisterhood.
We are equally grateful to our faculty, staff and SNJM sisters for their response to this crisis situation, and reaching out to our students daily to provide educational instruction and emotional support.Our commitment to educating the whole person and caring for these young women remains our top priority, and we need your help. Will you partner with us in this mission?
Thank you for living the value of Noblesse Oblige and supporting our students at this time. Your act of service is a blessing to us all and a sign of God’s love. We hope that you continue to practice social distancing, care for yourself and others, and know that the Holy Names community is holding you in our prayers as well.
