Areas of Support

Annual Fund

The actual cost of educating a student is more than what is charged for tuition, and the Annual Fund helps close that gap. Gifts to the Annual Fund are spent in the current fiscal year to support the school’s ongoing needs. The Annual Fund provides students with the resources they need while keeping a Jesuit education within financial reach for their families. Annual gifts support:

  • Need-based tuition assistance
  • Outstanding facilities and student programming
  • Athletics, fine arts and many other co-curricular programs and clubs
  • Student retreats and service trips
  • Faculty and staff professional development programs

Honor and memorial gifts can be made on behalf of a loved one. These gifts are considered unrestricted and are used for the immediate needs of the school.

For questions, contact Casey MacClaren ’12 in our Advancement Office.

Gifts to the Endowment

Invest in McQuaid Jesuit’s future by making an endowed gift. You can add to an existing endowment or create your own. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal’s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

A fully endowed scholarship that supports student financial assistance is approximately $350,000 for the 2023-24 academic year; partially endowed scholarships begin at $50,000. Gifts are typically given in one lump sum, through installment payments over a period of (sometimes) years, or through an estate plan.

If you are interested in contributing to an endowed scholarship fund, please go to Make a Giftselect Tribute Gift, and indicate which fund you would like to support. You may also contact Kristie Robertson-Coyne in our Advancement Office for more information.
