Provides long-term support by investing the funds donated and using the endowment earnings towards scholarships.
Three Marauders and their families share their thoughts on the impact of scholarship. Thanks to generous donors that help fund student financial aid, these young men were able to attend Jesuit and build “A Foundation for Life”!

Thank you to this year’s Scholarship Event keynote speaker, Dr. Richard P. Ericson ’95. The Scholarship Event “Coffee for a Cause” helps raise money for the Endowment.
The gift of an endowed scholarship provides Jesuit High School with a permanent asset from which students can receive support. For 50 years, Jesuit High School has shaped our Sacramento community by educating “Men for Others.” We want to ensure that every family who desires a Jesuit education can afford to send their son to Jesuit High School.
From the very beginning, Jesuit’s generous benefactors have shared their resources, which makes it possible for Jesuit to offer financial aid. However, requests for financial assistance exceed Jesuit’s ability to meet fully the needs of those attending Jesuit High School.
Named scholarships provide an opportunity not only to support Jesuit students but also create a lasting remembrance of a loved one. A fully-funded, named scholarship provides the total tuition and fee expense for one student, for one year, requires a corpus of $350,000. However, this total may be built up over time. Named scholarships are established with a minimum investment of $50,000. Any amount may be given to increase existing endowed scholarships.
