Make a Gift

Giving couldn’t be easier-just scan here to donate using Venmo.

After several years dealing with the pandemic, McQuaid Jesuit is proud to say that the true resilience of our students, faculty, families, and community as a whole has truly shown through. We entered into the pandemic years as a strong, cohesive, faithful, and loving community. Now two years later we have re-emerged stronger for having undergone this trial alongside one another.

With this in mind, our theme throughout this 2022-23 giving year is Start Strong – Finish Stronger. This is a challenge to our community as we to continue to strive for excellence in all things, as is the Jesuit way. As such, the challenge for our Advancement Office is to raise more than $1.7 million to make a Jesuit education available to young men and their families who could not afford it on their own. Success in this challenge is not possible without your generosity and we thank you for your continued support!
