The Development Department is responsible for fundraising in order to support the students of Saint Ignatius College Prep. Each year, the department raises millions of dollars for the Tuition Assistance Program, in addition to funds necessary to support annual operating costs, capital needs, and more. We raise these funds through appeals, personal visits, campaigns, the Parent Pledge Program and special events.

Annual Fund  -  Among the goals of the Annual Fund appeal at Saint Ignatius College Prep is to provide tuition assistance support for students who would otherwise be unable to attend Saint Ignatius.

Tuition Assistance  -  Where we need help the most! The Annual Fund largely supports our financial aid program and many donors designate their gifts to this program to support our students. These gifts assist us in continuing our tradition of accepting qualified students regardless of their family’s ability to pay the full cost of tuition.

Donor Advised FundA Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support Saint Ignatius. DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. 

Societies - Saint Ignatius College Prep prides itself on being a unique and diverse community of students, alumni, parents, families, faculty, staff and friends. As an opportunity to engage with others in the school community while also supporting the school and its students financially, the Development Office partnered with volunteer committee members to create six “Alumni & Friends” societies, open to all members of our community. The goals of these various societies, including the Law Society, are to cultivate professional networks, strengthen interpersonal relationships, and foster a stronger sense of community and support. Annual Membership rates are $250 and are 100% tax-deductible donations. Annual Membership rates for Young Professionals ages 30 and under are $150.

Parent Pledge - We are pleased to present a new option for our parents - make and pay your pledge online! The parent pledge program provides over $2 Million annually to help bridge the gap between the current expense of educating each student and the cost of tuition.

Endowments - Endowments are often started by alumni in the form of class gifts or by friends and families as memorials or tributes. These Endowments help fund over half of the $2.5 million in tuition assistance offered each year, support school programs, professional development, and ongoing maintenance.
