You Can Make a Real Difference

One of the easiest ways to support excellence in education is through a gift to the AHN Annual Fund. Student tuition covers only a part of the cost of the Holy Names educational experience. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide critical resources to enhance the educational experiences for all of our young women.
Your unrestricted gift makes a real difference in the everyday student experience . For example, Annual Fund donations help:

  • Attract and retain top-notch faculty
  • Maintain strong faith formation and campus ministry programs
  • Support our successful college counseling services
  • Ensure the vitality of AHN’s technology and science programs
  • Enable innovative curriculum development that attracts quality students
The Annual Fund is conducted over the fiscal year, July 1st to June 30th. 

Over its 135 years, Holy Names has developed an enviable reputation for excellence in educating young women. Please think about your important role in continuing this legacy when considering a donation to the Annual Fund.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a Matching Gifts program for current and/or retired employees. These companies often match, dollar-for-dollar or more, an employee’s charitable gift to an educational institution. Eligible donors are urged to participate in their company’s Matching Gifts program as it multiplies the value of your gift to Holy Names. Don’t forget to check your spouse’s employer, too.

Academy of the Holy Names' Tax ID # is 14-1514566. Our NYS Exempt Organization ID # is 114443.
