A Message from the Development Office...

Welcome! Thank you for visiting our Development page. Fundraising is the lifeblood of our Mission at Saint Ignatius College Prep. The investment that so many alumni, family and friends have made in us, allows us to offer the most distinctive Jesuit, Catholic educational experience in Chicago.  

There are so many ways to uniquely support Saint Ignatius College Prep. Tuition assistance is our most pressing need. No student in our 150+ year history has ever been turned away due to financial circumstances.  Others have chosen to create named endowed funds for tuition assistance or some type of programmatic support capitalizing on our sound investment acumen. Finally, so many alumni and friends have generously included Saint Ignatius College Prep in their estate plans. We hope you'll consider investing in us, and like so many before you, we hope you'll stand for our Mission and help us prepare students to set the world on fire for Christ.  

We put the "fun" in fundraisers!
