Jesuit Fund


An annual giving appeal that serves as the bedrock of our school fundraising.

As a non-profit, Jesuit High School’s financial model is founded on community, generosity, and philanthropy. Parents, alums, and friends provide essential support for the core aspects of Jesuit High School through donations.

The Challenge

logo for Jesuit Fund - your annual gift Our mission and tradition of providing the best Jesuit education possible are challenged each year by rising costs to operate the school – books, supplies, salaries, electricity, gas, etc. – just like the rising costs you face at home and in your business. In addition, being a private high school, we do not receive State or Federal educational funding; we also do not receive any monetary assistance from the Catholic church or the Society of Jesus.

Continuing in the teachings of St. Ignatius, we do not charge full tuition for any student and, as a non-profit, rely heavily on charitable donations to run the school.

What does this support

From curriculum development to campus ministry, teacher’s salaries to student financial aid, clubs to athletics, performing arts to building maintenance, and more, a gift to the Jesuit Fund provides an important vehicle for the community to support Jesuit’s mission — and through their contributions, Jesuit Fund donors develop a more meaningful connection with the school’s mission, traditions and priorities.

Who can participate

Everyone! The Jesuit Fund is a critical annual campaign at the core of our fundraising. To succeed, we invite alums, parents — current & past, faculty, staff, and friends to contribute to the Jesuit Fund.

Every gift makes a difference, your gift, large or small, supports the day-to-day needs of running Jesuit High School — from curriculum development to campus ministry, teacher’s salaries, athletics, Christian service, fine arts, student activities, and more. Your gift helps keep tuition costs down for all students.
