Starting an Endowment

Endowment funds can be a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding for Jesuit students, programs, faculty, and capital needs. Endowment assets are invested and each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose. Any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value, giving funds the chance to grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity.

When you establish an endowment fund at Jesuit, endowments can be named for yourself, your family, your friend, your favorite teacher, your company; your options are virtually limitless – and most importantly, they provide lasting care for Jesuit’s students, teachers, programs, and facilities. In addition, you can contribute to the numerous funds that already exist to support various initiatives ranging from tuition assistance and faculty development to program enhancements. Contact BJ Antes, 972-387-8700 x527, to learn how you can create a permanent legacy of support for the School.

Endowments and scholarships provide an excellent way to leave a legacy at Jesuit while directly impacting a deserving student who might not otherwise be able to attend. We are extremely grateful to our benevolent community for establishing endowments and scholarships that support our educational mission in perpetuity. For more information or to contribute to an existing endowment, please contact Maureen Nawalaniec (972-387-8700 x479; mnawalaniec@jesuitcp.org).
