Endowment Giving - Ensuring the Tradition Continues
A strong endowment at Jesuit will ensure that we carry forth the mission of Jesuit High School in perpetuity. Interest from the endowment helps meet the challenge of maintaining affordability and tuition assistance annually. The income from gifts may be designated for a variety of purposes. A named endowment fund may also be established with a minimum gift of $10,000. Behind each of these gifted funds is a strong commitment to Jesuit's future. Whether created in honor of an inspiring teacher or coach, in memory of a loved one or in response to a particular need of the school, these funds share a common act of leaving a legacy at Jesuit.
The Jesuit High School Foundation was created as an Oregon public benefit corporation under the Oregon Non-Profit Corporation Act. It is an independent legal entity that is not owned or managed by Jesuit High School. The foundation’s purpose is to enhance the religious, charitable, educational and literary purposes of Jesuit High School while also recognizing the specific wishes and intentions of any given donor.
The JHS Foundation is exempt from taxes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the foundation are deductible in the same manner as charitable gifts to the high school.
