Thank You! Parents Set New Annual Giving Record
Jesuit parents have pledged a record $1,283,000 to the annual giving drive that allows the school to remain an affordable school of excellence.
At morning assembly on Monday, Sept. 26, Fr. Anthony McGinn, S.J., thanked parents for embracing Jesuit’s commitment to affordability and for the role they play in making up the difference between what Jesuit charges for tuition and the actual cost of a Jesuit education. This year that difference is $2,877 per student.
The largest pledge amount came from parents in the Class of 2018, while the highest pledge percentage belongs to the Class of 2020, who also garnered the largest number of pledges.

Members of the PAG leadership team spent Sunday, Sept. 25 following up with parents who had yet to make their commitment to this year’s campaign. Prior to placing calls leaders joined more than a dozen past PAG chairs and their families for Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Name of Jesus.
This year’s drive is being chaired by Rocky Daigle ’85. Tri-chairs for the 2016-17 drive are: Bryon Hatrel ’84, Neal Kling, and Kelly Parenton ’90 (2017); René Alvarez ’83, Rick Kuebel ’82, and Tom Leonhard ‘8 (2018); Walt Bond ’85, Tony Toups ’81, and Mike Varisco ’83 (2019); Pat Huete ’84, Michael Johnson ’88, and Jeremy Mancheski ’90 (2020); and John Chamberlain, Roger May ’84, and Pat Morris ’90 (2021). They were joined by more than 300 volunteer captains who personally invited parental participation.
Parents have until May 31, 2017, to fulfill their commitments. Parents who have yet to make their pledge are invited and encouraged to do so as soon as possible.
