The joy of giving abounds here.

From tireless volunteers to steadfast donor support, De Smet Jesuit hosts several opportunities to honor God’s love for a cheerful giver. With spirited class competitions, festive annual galas, and fun themed events, Spartan energy is contagious as the community comes together to support students, teachers, and the school’s mission.

Our two largest fundraisers of the year are the Gala & Auction and the Tradition Golf Tournament. For more information, please click the links below.

Two of our most popular campaigns are Giving Tuesday and Maroon Madness.

On Giving Tuesday we campaign through social media to raise 100K in 1 Day.
