Provides long-term support for Tuition Assistance
Provides long-term support by investing the funds donated and using the endowment earnings towards scholarships.
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 for their son 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 need-based tuition assistance. However, requests for financial assistance exceed Jesuit’s ability to meet fully the needs of those attending Jesuit High School. More than $1,000,000 is typically distributed annually, and this support is given after a third-party evaluation is received by the school.
Names 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 $225,000. However, this total may be built up over time. Named scholarships are established with a minimum investment of $100,000. Any amount may be given to increase existing endowed scholarships. Jesuit High School also accepts contributions to support our annual financial aid budget, exclusive of endowed scholarships.
