Annual contributions to The Spartan Fund directly and immediately impact the lives of De Smet Jesuit students. From textbooks to retreats to class rings, there are many aspects of student life that are accessible to students because of the resources your annual gifts provide. Even though the education that takes place in the classrooms of De Smet Jesuit is the central focus of a student’s years with us, our supporters understand that the opportunities available beyond the classroom play an equally important role in the formation of our young men. Be assured that your gifts to The Spartan Fund are “at work” every day transforming the lives of students. Thank you for your continued support.
