De Smet Jesuit Annual Fund

The De Smet Jesuit Annual Fund is our most important philanthropic activity because it enables us to meet the full costs of a De Smet Jesuit education beyond what tuition revenues support.

All gifts to the De Smet Jesuit Annual Fund go immediately to the school's most pressing needs and benefit our current students in all aspects of their educational experience. In addition to providing resources for academic, technological and athletic support, Annual Fund gifts also help to ensure that the necessary funds are available to provide tuition assistance to our students from families with documented needs.

Your gift also demonstrates your belief in the value of a Jesuit, Catholic education, and serves as an affirmation of the good work we do every day in and out of the classroom. This commitment means we help young men develop not only their minds but also a personal relationship with God, an understanding of the world around them, and their responsibility to serve those as – Men For and With Others.

Many of our programs would not be possible without the contributions of donors like you.
