The Duchesne Society
A Lasting Gift.
Duchesne Society members make a profound contribution to the school via deferred gifts through life insurance, IRAs, wills and trust agreements.
The society is named for St. Philippine Rose Duchesne, RSCJ, who brought Sacred Heart Education to the United States, because society members demonstrate their commitment to Sacred Heart education by planning gifts that will benefit generations to come. Such benevolence is not marked by levels of giving but by a generosity of spirit that ensures Convent & Stuart Hall will continue to meet higher aspirations with every graduating class.
To become a member of the Duchesne Society, simply notify the Advancement Office of your intentions. We can provide sample bequest language and work with you and your advisors to ensure that the terms of your bequest can be fulfilled. Above all, we want you to achieve your philanthropic and financial goals.
If you have already included Convent & Stuart Hall in your estate plans (and haven't previously notified us), please let us know. We value your close connection and deep appreciation for Sacred Heart education in San Francisco. Duchesne Society members can choose to be recognized in the school's publications or to remain anonymous, and membership involves no dues or obligations of any kind.
