Details About Donating to the PAG Drive
The purpose of the annual PAG drive is to raise funds for Jesuit’s operating budget. Tax-deductible donations assist with offsetting Jesuit’s operating expenses, thus bridging the gap between total operating income and expenditures.

Additionally, donations to the PAG help maintain affordable tuition which results in a more diverse student population, one of the hallmarks of a Jesuit education.
The chairman of the 2012 – 2013 PAG drive is Brian North ’83. Participation in the drive by Jesuit parents is paramount to its continued success year after year. Approximately 90% or more of Jesuit parents take part in the drive. More information about the drive is featured in the PAG Brochure.
A successful PAG drive ensures that Jesuit will always remain the school you and your son chose — the school that will change his life.
If you have questions about the PAG drive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (504) 483-3841.

important alumni annual campaign.

Dinner is served at 5:30 PM each evening of the phone drive and contacting classmates begins at 6:30 PM. Note that these times are 1/2 hour earlier than in past drives.
If you have questions about the LEF drive, or would like to volunteer for the fall and/or spring phone campaigns, Sign-up Online, or email: email@example.com, or call (504) 483-3841. More information about this annual alumni drive can be found on the LEF Home Page.
Details about Donating to a Scholarship Fund
Contributions to Jesuit’s Scholarship Funds are gratefully accepted and are used to strengthen Jesuit’s endowment. Income earned from the endowment’s investments is primarily used for financial aid to the families of students whose parents cannot afford to pay all or part of the tuition. During the 2011 – 2012 school year, Jesuit provided more than $528,700 in financial aid to numerous families.
A reception in the Hall of Honors was held
to celebrate the fully endowed scholarship donated by the family of Jesuit alumnus

For those who wish to donate “In Memory of…” a relative, loved one, loved one, friend, or business associate, choose “Apply as a General Donation” in the drop-down menu on the Scholarships donation page.
Contributions may also be made to an already existing partial or fully endowed named scholarship. The names of the various scholarships are found in the drop-down menu located under “Scholarship Information” on the main scholarships donation page.
Endowing a scholarship in the name of a loved one is a unique way to honor and remember the individual while, at the same time, giving a tax deductible gift to Jesuit High School. Handsome plaques recognizing fully endowed scholarships are on display in the Hall of Honors, located on the second floor of the school. Currently, a fully endowed scholarship is $60,000.

Details about Donating to the POA Drive
(Non-Alumni Parents of Blue Jays Who Have Graduated)
The purpose of the POA drive is to raise funds for Jesuit’s operating budget. Tax-deductible donations assist with offsetting Jesuit’s operating expenses, thus bridging the gap between total operating income and expenditures.

annual crawfish party held annually in late April
to thank parents and alumni for their work

Additionally, donations to the POA drive help maintain affordable tuition which results in a more diverse student population, one of the hallmarks of a Jesuit education. Donations from parents of alumni help keep Jesuit…Jesuit, the school that will have a positive influence in the lives of current and future students.
As many parents already realize from their participation in the annual PAG drive when their sons were students, Jesuit was able to provide the experience of an economically diverse student body, which helped their Blue Jays grow into the men God planned them to become. Keeping Jesuit the school that it was when their sons attended means keeping Jesuit accessible to all qualified students. The generosity of parents of alumni enables Jesuit to successfully accomplish its mission.
If you have questions about the POA drive, please contact Tom Bagwill, director of Jesuit’s office of institutional advancement, at (504) 483-3817, or email: email@example.com.
Donating to the Class of 1962 Reunion Gift Fund
As we began meeting to plan our reunion’s events and remembering all those years, it was suggested that we give something special back to our school on the occasion of this 50th anniversary. The focus turned to the needs of the school, particularly the new Blue Jay athletic complex, Alumni Field at John Ryan Stadium.
Here is what we have in mind. Believe it or not, our senior year’s tuition was $225, a far cry from today’s $7,400. Therefore your reunion committee is asking for all of us in the Class of 1962 to consider a personal contribution of $225 towards our class’s gift to Jesuit High School. Of course, you may donate more. Our class’s contribution will be memorialized permanently within the athletic complex. That’s nice. But at the end of the day this is simply a token of what is in our hearts.
