Xavier Parent Partnership


Xavier Parent Partnership

Xavier parents are vital members of this community. You provide the support our students need to face the challenges and joys of adolescence. You encourage them to take chances and try new activities, and you celebrate their hard work and accomplishments along the way. With your help, they will leave Xavier as young men ready to transform the world for God’s greater glory.

Support the Annual Fund

Xavier’s commitment to educating intelligent, motivated young men of diverse backgrounds and means lends energy and dynamism to life on 16th Street. Your gifts sustain this diversity, a hallmark of Jesuit education. Each year, we face the challenge of rising costs for major operating expenses including benefits, utilities, and financial aid. Without contributions of all sizes to the Xavier Annual Fund, 16th Street would be a markedly different place. This year, we hope as many Xavier families as possible will partner with us by considering a challenge gift of $2,500 or more. Whether your family can contribute $25, $250, or $25,000––every gift matters, no matter the size. During the last fiscal year, gifts of $250 or less combined to total over $300,000, which together represented the single biggest contribution to the Annual Fund.

Support the Celebrate Xavier Scholarship Gala

Our hope and expectation is for all Xavier families to purchase or sell at least one Cash Raffle ticket. The prize is $10,000 cash and tickets are $100 each. Two tickets with all rules and a return envelope have been mailed to all families. Parents play a crucial part in soliciting and contributing auction items, basket raffle items, event sponsorships, and journal advertisements. Your efforts make the Celebrate Xavier Scholarship Gala a success each year, bringing hundreds of thousands of dollars for scholarships. For those who are able, we invite you to purchase tickets to attend the Gala on Friday, April 19, 2024 or to consider becoming a sponsor yourself. Please be on the lookout for your formal invitation as well!

Support Capital and Scholarship Needs

Since 1847, Xavier has grown and prospered thanks to major gifts from alumni, parents, and friends. Capital gifts strengthen our endowment, provide scholarship support, help to build and maintain facilities, and sustain a comprehensive range of academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs. For more information about capital gifts, please contact Shane Lavin.
