With a present value of approximately $15 million, the Brebeuf Jesuit endowment provides steady, annual interest to support many needs of the school. Essentially, the endowment helps to ensure the long-term financial health and sustainability of the school.
While all gifts to existing endowed funds are welcomed and appreciated, a minimum gift of $25,000 can establish a new endowed fund at Brebeuf Jesuit. All gifts are invested and many scholarships are awarded from the net income.
An endowed scholarship may be established to honor family, friends or the donor. Criteria for awarding the scholarship is best served when as flexible as possible, and the staff of the Office for Institutional Advancement will work with you to develop an award that is meaningful to you and your loved ones, best reflects your intent, and follows the school’s gift acceptance policy. An endowed scholarship may be funded with an immediate gift, a pledge payable over a period of up to five years, or an estate gift.
