Why Vis? In this month's View from Vis blog, Upper School Director Anna Barter has some heartfelt answers to that question, particularly in regard to Visitation's impact on herself, the students and the broader community. Please read this month's blog post to see some of Dr. Barter's answers to why Vis is such a compelling place.
Fundraising is vital to Visitation.
Tuition covers 83% of the school’s operating budget. Additional resources are required to meet day-to-day expenses, increase the endowment and make capital improvements.
When the Sisters opened the doors 142 years ago, they began a tradition that endures today. The generous support of the Visitation community allows that mission to move forward, providing every Visitation student the chance to excel.
To learn more about philanthropic opportunities, please contact Anne Brady Kane '87, Director of Advancement, via email or at 651-683-1702.
The DeSales Annual Fund helps make Visitation a school like no other: dedicated faculty and staff, a beautiful campus, a caring community and a dynamic education for students.
Including Visitation in your estate plans ensures that the legacy of the Sisters extends far into the future. Planned giving is vital to the school for providing resources that can be drawn on year after year.
Every year, on the first Saturday in March, the Visitation community comes together for an auction and gala to support the Annual Fund and to celebrate the vibrant Vis spirit.
