The Challenge Drive is an annual campaign to make up the difference between what Jesuit Dallas charges for tuition and what it actually costs to educate a student.
Men For Others
As parents we want our boys to grow to embody this motto in how they lead their lives. The Challenge Drive is a way for parents to live out this commitment toMen For OthersYour donation to the Challenge Drive ensures that tuition remains affordable and accessible for most families and will allow Jesuit to maintain a talented and diverse student body. This year the Gap between the actual cost of an education and tuition charged is $1,960.00. Each family is asked to participate in the Challenge Drive. If you are financially able to give at the Gap level or above, please do so. If you cannot contribute at that level, I ask for you to give what you can. Thanks in advance for your consideration and commitment to Men For Others.
Thank you for taking the Challenge,
Challenge Drive Chair and Current Parent
TAKE THE CHALLENGE.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE DRIVE?
The purpose of the Challenge Drive is to cover the GAP between the tuition that is collected and the actual cost to educate a student for the 2014-15 academic year.
WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
Your 100% tax deductible support impacts every student at Jesuit by enabling programs and opportunities beyond those covered by tuition alone.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE?
Jesuit needs as many parents as possible to give the GAP. For parents with multiple students, we ask you to remember that the GAP is determined on a per-student basis
COST OF EDUCATING A JESUIT STUDENT
WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD TO CONTRIBUTE THE FULL GAP?
A goal of the drive is to have every family participate in a personally significant way. Jesuit relies on the generosity of parents who are able to contribute at whatever amount is within their means.
WHAT IS CHALLENGE DRIVE SUNDAY?
Challenge Drive Sunday (October 5, 2014) celebrates the end of the drive and brings parents together to reach 100% participation. If you have not made your pledge by Challenge Drive Sunday, a volunteer will call or visit you to request your pledge card.
