Donnelly '15 Featured in Chicago Magazine for His Compost Business
Even for a college student, Liam Donnelly '15 pulls a lot of all-nighters. The 20-year-old junior at Loyola University Chicago is carrying a course load that has him on pace to graduate early, but he isn’t burning the midnight oil cramming for exams. As cyclist-in-chief for WasteNot Compost, the company he founded at age 15, Donnelly '15 spends the overnight hours biking across Chicago’s North Side, trailer in tow, to pick up his clients’ buckets of waste.

The Clock is Ticking... Act Now for the Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program
Many of you have heard about Senate Bill 1947 regarding State of Illinois income tax credits that will assist Catholic and private schools. This is the first time the State of Illinois is providing tax credits to non-public elementary and secondary education. This program might be helpful as you plan for 2017 state taxes. Donors are encouraged to apply for a tax credit as early in 2018 as possible. In order to apply for a tax credit you must first go to the www.mytax.illinois.gov
website and request a "LetterID" number that you must input to the IL Dept. of Revenue website when tax credit applications open on January 2nd. The "LetterID" will be sent via the postal service and could take up to 10 days to arrive. CLICK HERE
for instructions on how to apply for the LetterID. CLICK HERE
for instructions on the tax credit application.
Many details regarding the new school tax credit program, which was passed by the state legislature this Fall, remain undetermined. CLICK HERE
for more information about the program and what Saint Ignatius is doing at the present time.
Until the State Department of Finance comes out with further guidelines, this is all the school has to work with. The Archdiocese is working on affiliating with an existing Scholarship Granting Organization that would serve as an umbrella for all Catholic schools. If you have questions please contact John Chandler, at 312-432-8350.

Can You Support A Student This Advent Season?
As we enter the season of Advent, our Saint Ignatius
College Prep school community prepares for the birth of Christ, the coming of
His kingdom, and the beginning of the Christmas season.
At this time of year we also look back upon our student’s many accomplishments
during the first semester. Whether in the classroom, athletic field or
co-curricular club, we can all take pride in knowing our students are making
the most of the extraordinary Catholic, Jesuit education they are receiving.
Your previous generosity has enabled more than 1/3 of the student body
to receive tuition assistance. During the remaining days of Advent you have the
chance to make an ever-lasting difference in the life of a student.
I am hopeful that each member of our school community will pick one day this
Advent season to give back to Saint Ignatius and make a donation to the
school’s Tuition Assistance Program.
You and your families will be in my prayers this Advent season and during the
