Giving & Special Events


The Endowment Fund at AHN is the foundation for long-term stability,  making a lasting impact for future students, faculty and staff. Gifts to the endowment will be invested and held in perpetuity as they grow over time. The interest earned can be used for scholarships, faculty enrichment, and the growth of Holy Names.
For the past 52 years, Mary Anne Vigliante has dedicated her life to impacting the lives of young women in the Capital Region. It is estimated that more than 2,700 young women have graduated from Academy of the Holy Names in the 52 years Mary Anne has been affiliated with the school. 

To honor the amazing dedication of Ms. Vigliante to AHN, The Mary Anne Vigliante Endowed Scholarship for Educational Excellence was established in 2019. The purpose of the Fund is to support a scholarship to a student attending Academy of the Holy Names who is the daughter of a Holy Names alumna and who shows academic promise as determined by the Admissions Committee. The scholarship shall be awarded for four academic years providing the recipient continues to meet the conditions of eligibility and funds are available.

If you would like to participate in ensuring that Ms. Vigliante’s legacy of educational excellence lives on for generations to come, please make your gift today by clicking here.
