Saint Ignatius High School alumni, parents and friends rallied together in a 24-hour day of philanthropic giving on March 12, in celebration of our Jesuit, Catholic heritage and mission. March 12 is special because on that date in 1622, our patron and founder of the Jesuit order, St. Ignatius Loyola, was canonized by Pope Gregory XV.
Because of the generosity of our entire community, we reached 185% of our goal and had 743 donors participate in yesterday's Giving Day! We are overwhelmed by the support that will directly impact the lives of our students.
For more than 130 years, Saint Ignatius High School has existed not to make students better than everyone else but rather to make students better for everyone else. Our diverse learning environment encourages critical thinking coupled with deep reflection. The gifts received on Giving Day will go to support our Jesuit mission, tuition assistance, academics, the arts, athletics and The Welsh Academy – ensuring the strength of Saint Ignatius High School.
Thank you for your generosity. Your gifts have a strong impact on each and every student at Saint Ignatius High School.
