"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"

Why is Cor Jesu participating in Giving Tuesday?

CJ is tapping into the momentum of a global day of giving in order to help build a new, larger Cor Jesu Chapel on campus.

Why a Chapel?

Cor Jesu’s current Chapel is a small gathering space. The new Chapel will become the focal point of our campus, symbolizing our dedication to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As part of our mission and vision to create a community of young women who accept and share God’s love, we are in the schematic design stages working toward building a Chapel large enough to accommodate 200 people. This will allow us to have a full class Mass, a Kairos Mass, a team Mass, full class adoration and many more opportunities for worship.

Cor Jesu Has Secured $110,000 in Matching Funds for Giving Tuesday!

Each donation made to CJ on Giving Tuesday (December 3, 2019) will be worth double the amount, thanks to donors who have agreed to match the donations we receive on Giving Tuesday, up to $110,000. Donors who work for companies that match their giving can triple the amount of their donation on that day! Click here to see if your company matches employee giving to triple the impact.

What Gifts are Eligible for Matching?

All gifts made on December 3 to the new Cor Jesu Chapel will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $110,000.

Because the matching gift challenge on Giving Tuesday is restricted to Chapel gifts, alumnae gifts to the Alumnae Heart-to-Heart Society are not eligible to be matched. However, if you would still like to give to your Class Scholarship or join the Heart-to-Heart Society, Giving Tuesday is a great day to do so and be part of the community effort to support Cor Jesu!
