|U of D Jesuit celebrates its legacy of providing 143 years of the highest quality Jesuit college preparatory education to young men in southeast Michigan. For almost a century and a half we have challenged students to go beyond academic excellence, to be reflective, to be committed to the service of personal faith and the promotion of justice -- to be men for others.|
One hundred percent of the revenue generated from the auction goes toward providing tuition assistance to young men attending U of D Jesuit. For the 2019-2020 school year, 34 percent of our young men are attending U of D Jesuit because we are able to provide them with financial aid. This amounts to more than $2.3 million, giving students an opportunity their families couldn’t otherwise afford. With your support and the support of others we look forward to helping these young men create their own legacy as they grow and give back to our communities. Your partnership is crucial to our success - thank you for your support.
