Donor Advised Funds (DAF)
A donor advised fund is a program of a public charity that allows you to make an irrevocable contribution and then recommend grants to qualified nonprofit organizations. To learn more, please contact your financial advisor or visit www.vdoh.org/DAF

You can also utilize DAF Direct below to recommend funds from your donor-advised funds to Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. 

Matching Gifts 
Some companies will match your gift, making your gift worth more while crediting you the total amount. A matching gift occurs when participating companies match (sometimes up to double or triple) the amount of dollars given to Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School by their employees and spouses, or retirees. The company matches the gift only after the donor has sent his or her gift to Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School along with the company's matching gift form. Certain companies will match capital campaign and endowment gifts as well as annual giving and scholarship gifts. To check if your employer has a matching gift program, ask your employer directly or use our HEPdata search below.

Annual Giving Ambassadors

The primary goal of the Annual Giving Ambassador program is to advance our school for the benefit of our students and carry on the mission of Sacred Heart education for future generations. Ambassador communications do not necessarily include a request for monetary support, the main message is about participation.

Annual Giving Phone-A-Thon

Each winter, at about the mid-point in our Annual Giving campaign, parents, students, alums and staff members come together for a week of marathon phone sessions to get the word out and maximize our pledge collection. Phone-a-thon volunteers:

  • Thank those who support our students’ education
  • Ask those who haven’t given yet this year for renewed support of our annual giving campaign
  • For a select group of those who have given, ask them to consider a giving level upgrade
  • Make sure everyone is aware of eScrip and matching gifts
  • Enjoy the company of others in the VDOH community and complimentary refreshments

La Boutique Campus Store

La Boutique sells school supplies and other items during the school day. Volunteers are needed to help staff the shop during school hours.
