How the community support has impacted me
Why I Give
Through the generosity, kindness, and commitment of our alumni and benefactors, De Smet Jesuit strives to make Jesuit education affordable to any young man regardless of his family's socio-economic background. Multiple events raise money throughout the year including the Big Draw raffle, our annual auction, and the Tradition golf tournament.
Tuition assistance is need-based. In an effort to obtain a complete financial profile, regardless of marital status, De Smet Jesuit requires both of the student's natural parents/guardians to complete a FACTS application in order to receive tuition assistance. and may need to be verified with additional documents. De Smet Jesuit's administrative team will determine award distribution.
