Message from the Institutional Advancement Office

 

Hello ICHS Community!

 

An Immaculate Conception High School education is founded upon the Felician heritage and adheres to the highest standards. Guided by our mission to educate and transform students into young women of competence, compassion, and commitment in a Catholic Felician-Franciscan tradition of leadership and service, young women who graduate from ICHS become well-educated leaders, innovators, and dreamers. 

 

As shared in the 2019-2020 academic year, Immaculate Conception High School embarked on a five-year Strategic Plan that called for the Institutional Advancement Office to reorganize and refocus all fundraising and marketing efforts. From advancing our Felician mission to organizing alumnae events, the Institutional Advancement Office has been actively involved in Immaculate Conception High School’s past, present, and future.

 

The goals are to revitalize the school at all levels through the integration of fundraising, marketing, enrollment, and communication. The Institutional Advancement Office will implement a strong culture of philanthropy where school leaders and all constituents will understand their role and feel compelled and inspired to participate in all development efforts. Building the culture of philanthropy begins in the Enrollment/Admissions’ Office with new parents and continues into the Institutional Advancement Office with alumnae, friends, and all community members.

 

Due to COVID-19, all academic and institutional advancement efforts had to shift, driving interactions and instruction to become remote. Like so many people across the United States and the world, some of our hard-working families have been impacted financially by the current health crisis. Additionally, our annual fundraising events that were designed to provide financial assistance and scholarships for students were postponed.

 

Unprecedented times call for creativity and ICHS has successfully endured through these tough times. We are comprehensively planning and finding innovative ways to incorporate virtual events to enhance enrollment efforts and fundraising opportunities.

 

With your support we can continue to provide our students endless opportunities and we ask that you help us carry out our mission by making a donation to the ICHS Tuition Assistance Fund. Your completely tax-deductible gift will directly impact the young women we serve.

Thank you for your support, passion, and commitment to our students. 

 

Appreciatively,
