St. Vincent’s Academy began a new fundraiser this year called the Circle of Mercy. Ten alumnae were asked to raise a total of $100,000 and this year’s fundraiser’s showed outstanding leadership and well surpassed their goal! The Circle of Mercy fundraisers were celebrated at the new Martinis & Masterpieces event. These events raised a total of $146,000 . . . Wow!

This year, monies from this fundraiser will be used for technology, convent renovation for additional classroom space, and scholarship! Technology in our world is ever changing. This fundraiser allowed us to purchase mobile carts that house twenty computers each for a new technology class that begins this school year. This will allow our girls to continue to receive the highest educational experience with the best resources!

As our building on the corner of Lincoln and Liberty Streets has evolved over the years, it will continue still. With this fundraiser, monies raised will allow part of SVA’s Convent building to transform into needed classroom space for our wonderful students. Be on the lookout to hear more about this!

In addition, monies raised support scholarship and aid for students in need of a “guardian angel” to help them attend SVA.

A huge THANK YOU to our ten alumnae fundraisers for helping make such a huge difference at St. Vincent’s Academy! You are true Saints and we are ever grateful for your dedication and amazing work in well surpassing your goal! A special thank you to:
