CSH launches capital campaign

Convent of the Sacred Heart (CSH) has announced the launch of a $25.5 million capital campaign called Framing Our Future: Today, Tomorrow and Forever.

The first phase of the campaign seeks $25.5 million in capital gifts to support the construction of a new athletic field house, expanded and renovated student dining room, outdoor learning and social spaces, new roadways and parking at the Greenwich campus.

Plans also include the addition of a state-of-the-art dance studio, squash courts, fitness room and a multi-purpose gymnasium. The CSH board has said it is planning to begin construction this May and have the completed facilities ready for the 2015-2016 school year.

“We have already raised more than $13 million in gifts and pledges from our generous donors,” said Head of School Pamela Juan Hayes. “Our goal is to physically transform our campus by creating spaces that encourage the values of faith, character, community, courage, sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, critical thinking and reflection.”

The campaign is led by two CSH fathers who are also trustees of the school. Serving as the campaign co-chairs are Neil Augustine and Doug Mellert, both of Greenwich.

“This is an extraordinary start, and we have plans and municipal approvals in place to begin construction in May 2014,” said Mr. Augustine.

“This campaign will produce an exciting physical transformation of our campus, said Mr. Mellert. “We will enhance an already vibrant and successful athletic program and create both new and expanded community spaces for our students.”
