#GivingTuesday - My Favorite Sacred Heart Charities

Below in alphabetical order are my personal Sacred Heart favorites for #GivingTuesday

Today is "Giving Tuesday" and I have prepared a list of Sacred Heart organizations to send a donation in honor or memory of a loved one.  As they say, it is better to give than to receive.  Wishing all a very blessed Advent season!

Barat Education Foundation - Click here to donate and/or learn more

The Barat Education Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2000 prior to the sale of Barat College to DePaul University.  At that time, the Foundation was charged with the development and support of innovative educational programs and services that reflected the values and educational tradition of Barat College.
When DePaul University closed Barat College in June 2005, the Board of Directors voted to perpetuate and build upon the Barat legacy of education, leadership and advocacy.
Today, the Barat Education Foundation is committed to continuing and adapting the heritage and legacy of Barat College to our 21st-century world.

As heirs of the legacy and educational tradition of Barat College and its Foundresses, the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the Barat Education Foundation develops and seeks support for innovative scholarships and entrepreneurial educational ventures which reflect the deep commitment to: intellectual, spiritual, and ethical values; empowerment of women, social awareness that impels to action; the building of community.

“This name, Religious of the Sacred Heart, is in itself a mission.”
                St. Madeleine Sophie Barat
The Society of the Sacred Heart continues its mission each day: to discover and make known the love of the Heart of Christ in the world. We do this through our commitment to prayer and contemplation, serving in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, in colleges, universities, and other educational institutions, in spiritual ministry centers, parishes, hospitals and in direct service to those most in need. We care for our elderly sisters and are involved in the ministry of justice and peace.
For the Society of the Sacred Heart, mission advancement is about fidelity to relationships, expanding and being faithful to the larger family of the Sacred Heart – associates, alumnae/i, Network colleagues, families, benefactors, friends, ministry collaborators and Religious of the Sacred Heart so that the love of the Heart of Christ will be better known and our world will become a more loving place. Mission advancement seeks to increase our resources and direct them to the present and future mission of the Society and the care of our eldest members.

It is a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, wild turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, and pigs. It is a market, selling our internationally award-winning cheeses and farm-produced meats, as well as local Hudson Valley milk, eggs, vegetables, crafts, and gifts.
