Welcome to the Strake Jesuit Development Department
The Development Department at Strake Jesuit is in place to raise funds and other resources to support the academic, capital and endowment needs of the school. This is accomplished through the Annual Alumni and Parent Drives, Fantasy Auction, Spring Fling, and other special events as well as The Greater Glory Capital Campaign and planned giving programs. The department also communicates the school's mission, vision and activities to parents, alums, students and the general public through this web site, the The Chronicle of Strake Jesuit College Preparatory magazine, the Parents Newsletter (The Shield), e-mails and the media. Parent volunteer and alumni activities are also coordinated through this department.
All donations to Jesuit, regardless of the size, make a difference in so many ways and make a difference in so many lives. They have provided the opportunity for many young men, for whom it would not have been economically possible, to receive the gift of a Strake Jesuit education. Each generation has benefited from the generosity of the generations that went before it, and through continued fund raising efforts, many more generations will benefit as well. Keeping up with inflation, paying faculty and staff just wages, maintaining the facility, meeting the challenges of technology and most importantly, providing this education to all who desire are just a few of the challenges and inspirations that keep us focused on the need to raise money. Charitable gifts to Strake Jesuit College Preparatory are wise investments in the current and future education of our children - and our communities.
I hope that you will take a few moments to review the information on these pages and find the best way that you can help keep the gift of Strake Jesuit alive for the young men of today as well the ones that will follow in their footsteps.
