Giving Heart Day is December 8. Support our mission of forming priests, deacons and lay leaders to be heralds of the New Evangelization according to the Heart of Jesus.

Join us in honoring this special #givingHEARTday! 

It’s not December 8, 2023 yet – can I make a donation?

Yes, you do not have to wait until Decem­ber 8 to make your gift. All gifts made on the #giv­ing­HEART­day site will count toward our #giv­ing­HEART­day totals.

Is my online gift secure?

Yes, Sacred Heart Major Sem­i­nary uses SSL (Secure Sock­ets Lay­er) to com­mu­ni­cate with your brows­er soft­ware when you reg­is­ter with us online. SSL is the indus­try stan­dard secu­ri­ty pro­to­col, which makes it extreme­ly dif­fi­cult for any­one else to inter­cept the per­son­al infor­ma­tion you send us in con­junc­tion with your reg­is­tra­tion. Sacred Heart Major Sem­i­nary has part­nered with Black­baud, a lead­ing pay­ment pro­cess­ing com­pa­ny in high­er edu­ca­tion, to pro­vide secure cred­it card pay­ment pro­cess­ing. Sacred Heart requires full com­pli­ance with PCI DSS (Pay­ment Card Indus­try, Data Secu­ri­ty Stan­dards) of any ven­dor or ser­vice provider engaged by the sem­i­nary trans­act­ing, pro­cess­ing or oth­er­wise han­dling card­hold­er data. Black­baud is inde­pen­dent­ly cer­ti­fied at the high­est lev­el of secu­ri­ty (Lev­el 1 PCI DSS).

Is my gift tax deductible?

Sacred Heart Major Sem­i­nary is a tax-exempt edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tion under sec­tion 501 of the Inter­nal Rev­enue Code. As such, your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

How do I get a tax receipt for my #givingHEARTday donation?

You should receive an email from us imme­di­ate­ly after you make your dona­tion to acknowl­edge your gift. We will also mail an IRS sub­stan­ti­a­tion let­ter by Jan­u­ary 30th.

How can I contact staff professionals?

Please con­tact Emi­ly Berschback, Direc­tor of Alum­ni Rela­tions and Spe­cial Events, at [email protected] 313.596.7424

How can I make a gift of Stock/Mutual Funds?

To make a gift of stock to Sacred Heart Major Sem­i­nary, please con­tact Jim Thomas (313) 5967408 or the online con­tact form to noti­fy us of the name of the company/​stock, tick­er sym­bol, num­ber of shares, and approx­i­mate date of trans­fer. This allows us to iden­ti­fy you with the trans­fer and have the pro­ceeds direct­ed to the appro­pri­ate fund.

Can I designate my #givingHEARTday gift for a different fund or program?

Yes, you can direct your gift to a spe­cif­ic sem­i­nary pro­gram that is mean­ing­ful to you. You can select from a list of funds or indi­cate your pref­er­ence when com­plet­ing the dona­tion form.
