The Campaign for Ursuline seeks to secure support for Ursuline’s two annual priorities – The Ursuline Fund and Scholarships, while simultaneously moving forward two larger visions for Capital Improvements and Endowment Growth.

Mardi Gras is an essential part of the annual effort to raise money in support of scholarships. Over the years, the event has funded over $25 million in financial assistance for Ursuline Academy students. Thank you in advance to our generous and supportive Ursuline community!
