Why I Give & the Impact of Generosity
Alumni, Families, Friends —Using Time, Talents and Treasure to Create a Foundation for Life
Building a foundation for life for our young men—today and into the future.
Thank you for being part of the Jesuit Sacramento community!
“We are blessed that all four of our children have had exceptional Jesuit educational experiences – including our three boys here at Jesuit High.
Your gift to Jesuit supports an educational environment that graduates Men for Others who will care about others, who will be bold leaders that make ethical choices, who will know the longing of their soul, and will become the men God intended them to be.”
—Steve and Lucy Peters (Will Peters ’13, John Peters ’14, Andrew Peters ’19)

Christopher ’92 and Julie Brown
“As an alum, I am so thankful to my mom, Darlene, for the gift of
Jesuit that she gave to me. My education has brought much into my
life and now my son, Marcus ’23, is able to experience the same
campus, culture and values as I did. I support the Annual Fund so
that another young man can receive the same gift of a Jesuit
education that my son and I did. And, together with my wife, we
are honored to also give of our time in leading the spirit of all
on campus as co-presidents of JHS Boosters.”
“I will continue to volunteer and support Jesuit after Dev and Taj graduate because having opportunities to contribute and invest my time for our JHS family has been, and is, the right thing to do. I am very grateful for Jesuit Sacramento’s commitment to a holistic learning experience, not only for my sons, but for all of the young men enrolled.”
Jennifer and Jerry Horan
“We presently have our fourth son enrolled at JHS and couldn’t be more thrilled with every year of our now nine years of attendance. There hasn’t been a single day of our cumulative time that our sons have not loved being part of the Jesuit brotherhood. Jesuit offers exceptional academics, a multitude of extracurricular options, a phenomenal faculty, and, most importantly, a faith-based foundation that permeates every aspect of the boys’ educational experience.”

In Their Own Words
What the Jesuit Brotherhood means
Patrick Stodden ’19
“The brotherhood at Jesuit is encased in the smiles that I see in my friends, because behind the smile is a genuine person who (over our years here) now cares for me and is someone I can care for as well. The spirit of the students, both with God and on the campus, is what breathes life into Jesuit.”
