Month of Magis Donor Story – The Pahud Family

The Pahud family has been part of the Brebeuf Jesuit community for more than 12 years, graduating three wonderfully successful Brave alumni – Wil (2012), Janie (2015) and John (2018).  Their passion for Brebeuf can be seen in the many ways in which they share their time and leadership.  Dana is a former Bistro Co-Chair and Treasurer of the Mother’s Association, and a current member of the Advancement Committee.  Kevin is a long time Finance Committee member and its current Chair.  He is also a member of the Brebeuf Jesuit Board of Trustees.

Dana and Kevin shared that what is most impressive about Brebeuf has been “its culture of welcoming different religions, promoting individuality, encouraging students to try new things and its focus on excellence–all while inviting students to seek and recognize God in all aspects of their lives.  

For our children, this was highlighted by the impactful relationships developed with faculty and coaches, which has instilled a sense of community where they know they will always be welcomed and valued.  We see this exemplified in the decisions made by the leadership team and Board, time and again, to foster a culture of understanding and acceptance – striving always to adhere to our Mission Statement.”

“As Chair of the Finance Committee I have a deep understanding of the level of support needed for our students.  The Board has made a commitment that every qualified student will be able to attend Brebeuf regardless of ability to pay.  This policy has created, and will continue to create, an incredible student body, filled with future leaders, critical thinkers and compassionate members of our society.  We can think of no better investment than to support the formation of these students and play a small role in their development as men and women for others!”

Thank you, Dana and Kevin, for your incredible support!
