Investing in young women who will make a difference in our world
The heart of the mission of Ursuline Academy is guiding young women in bringing out their inner talents in mind, body, and spirit. The dedicated faculty and staff at Ursuline work tirelessly to achieve this aim, but they do not work alone. For over 50 years, alumnae, parents and friends of Ursuline have partnered with us in the pursuit of this mission through their generous support of the Academy.
Our students are inspired by their Ursuline experiences, but providing this excellent education comes at a price that tuition alone does not cover. Three major fundraising endeavors - the Annual Fund, the Brescia Ball and the Fore the Girls Tournament - supplement the cost of an Ursuline education and ensure that Ursuline Academy can continue to promote the mission and values of St. Angela Merici and the Ursuline Sisters.
The Annual Fund is the largest fundraising vehicle of Ursuline Academy and the main source of philanthropic support. Annual Fund gifts, by their very nature, are put to use immediately and help provide the flexibility to respond to new opportunities and unexpected needs. Such support allows the Academy to carry on the Ursuline vision of providing educational excellence while honoring innovation and exercising flexibility to meet the needs of changing times.
The Brescia Ball is an annual gala and auction that celebrates the mission of Ursuline Academy and honors members of our community who work tirelessly in its name. Over the past five years, the Brescia Ball has raised approximately $500,000 to benefit the students of the Academy.
Join alumnae, family and friends on November 4, 2017 and experience the magic of Ursuline. The funds raised at the Brescia Ball go toward supporting the potential and power of an Ursuline education. A little magic goes a long way.
Fore the Girls Tournament
The Fore the Girls Tournament is a golf outing held each spring. Members of the Ursuline community gather for a day on the golf course, followed by a lively silent auction and dinner. Proceeds support scholarships at the Academy.
There are many ways to support this event. Play a round of golf, sponsor the event, donate an auction item or make a monetary donation. Save the date and join alumnae, parents and friends on May 29, 2018.
The Office of Advancement at Ursuline Academy has the responsibility of engaging alumnae and parents in a meaningful way. Members of the Advancement team support the mission of Ursuline Academy, raise critical funds to support both current and future students, and work to build relationships with alumnae, parents, grandparents, students, faculty and staff, and friends. The members of Ursuline's Advancement staff are listed below.
