Make a Gift

This year McQuaid Jesuit, along with Jesuit institutions throughout the world, celebrates an Ignatian Year: the 500th anniversary of Saint Ignatius’ “cannonball moment” when as a soldier losing a battle to serious injury, he began a long journey of recovery and an even longer conversion to a pilgrim on the road to founding the Jesuits.

Our theme throughout this anniversary year is Rising to the Challenge. The challenge for our Advancement Office is to raise more than $1.5 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 generous support and we thank you for your generous support!
