What is the purpose of 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 2013-14 academic year.
What is the GAP for 2013-14?
What am I asked to give?
Jesuit asks that you help make up the GAP between what it costs to educate your son(s) and the tuition you pay. If you can give more, we thank you for your generosity. If the GAP is out of reach, we ask that you give what you are able.How much should I give?
Jesuit needs as many parents as possible to give the GAP or higher, if you are able.
For those who cannot give at the Gap Level, Jesuit asks that you give what you can. Reaching 100 percent participation in its fundraising efforts can be of tremendous importance when Jesuit approaches foundations for grants.
Is my gift to the Challenge Drive tax-deductible?
What is the Parents’ Goal for 2013-14?
$1,000,000 + 100% participation from all parents.
When do I make my pledge?
- Anytime before Challenge Drive Sunday on October 6, 2013.
- You can pledge online
- You can pledge when a parent volunteer visits your home on Challenge Drive Sunday.
How do I pay my pledge?
You can pay the day you make your pledge, or by the end of the fiscal year, June 30, 2014. You can make monthly, quarterly, or semiannual payments. Credit card payments are accepted as well.
Does Jesuit qualify for a matching gift program?
Yes. Jesuit is a private, secondary school and many corporations do have matching fund programs for such institutions. The Challenge Drive has benefited from matching gift amounts in previous drives. This could more than double your total gift to Jesuit and you receive the added benefits of a higher giving level.
