Giving


A GIFT TO EDUCATION IS ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING AND MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTIONS YOU CAN MAKE.

Every year, thousands of De Smet Jesuit alumni, parents and friends make important contributions that provide critical support and create exciting opportunities for students and faculty. Some give their time, some give their money, and some do both. These people have chosen to invest themselves in De Smet Jesuit with extraordinary generosity.
