Support Visitation

At Visitation, girls with dreams become women with vision. When you give to Visitation, you help each young woman here live St. Francis de Sales’ exhortation to “Be who you are and be that well, to give honor to the Master Craftsman whose handiwork you are.” You support a Catholic education that emphasizes character, faith, authenticity, compassion, and service. Each woman here learns what it means to Live Jesus - and she carries that call to action with her into the world.

Pairing the life-giving Little Virtues of kindness, humility, generosity, patience, and joyful optimism with an academically challenging education and a rich array of leadership opportunities, Visitation empowers our students to meet the demands and challenges of today’s rapidly changing and morally complex world. We guide our students to become self-reliant, intellectually mature, and morally responsible women of faith, vision, and purpose.

Your gift to Visitation makes all of this possible.

More than 2,400 alumnae, parents, and friends regularly support the school through annual and planned gifts to The Visitation Annual Fund. Their unwavering support helps ensure the school’s financial stability, provide financial aid, maintain and preserve our beautiful historic campus, hire and retain outstanding teachers, and much more.

If you would like to learn more about the many ways you can support Visitation, please contact the Advancement Office or call 202.787 5676.
