Ways to Give

“For those who love, nothing is too difficult, especially when it is done for the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

At St. Ignatius School, our goal is to empower students to reach their full potential, to become their best selves-intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Your continued financial support benefits not only our enrolled 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys and girls from the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx, but our alumni, who we continue to shepherd through high school and into college. In 2018-2019, the school will serve 80 middle school students, and the goal is to increase the student body to 90 students in the coming years. Your support will make this a reality.

Saint Ignatius School is an independent middle school for low-income students that is sponsored by the USA Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). Nativity-model schools serve low-income students and therefore are not tuition-driven. Parents pay a modest monthly fee to send their children to Saint Ignatius School, but 95% of our operating expenses must be raised through other sources. All gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

For more information please contact Jeremy Clifford, President, at jclifford@sis-nativity.org, or by phone at 718 861-9084, ext. 300.
