Donors who make a gift for two or more years in a row will become members of the 1855 Loyalty Society.
Honoring our history of generosity. In 1855, Rev. Anthony Maraschi, a Roman Catholic priest and a member of the Society of Jesus, founded St. Ignatius Academy in a one-room schoolhouse on Market Street. Today, over 160 years later, St. Ignatius College Preparatory serves over 1,400 students, helping them to grow into men and women committed to faith, justice, leadership, service, academic excellence and compassion. None of this would be possible without the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends.
To honor and recognize SI’s most loyal donors, we have launched the 1855 Loyalty Society. Loyalty Society members are a special community of supporters that, year after year, make a difference. Your generosity supports tuition assistance, academic innovation, service to the community and more. Members are recognized on a donor honor roll and with invitations to special events. Members will also receive special SI swag upon reaching each recognition level.
Joining and maintaining your membership in the 1855 Loyalty Society is easy. Donors qualify for membership upon their second consecutive fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) of giving or immediately after committing to a recurring gift or multi-year pledge. To sustain your membership and reach new recognition milestones, just be sure to make a gift (of any amount) every year.
Membership in the 1855 Loyalty Society
SI is excited to recognize our generous supporters at the following levels:
- Charter—2 to 9 consecutive years
- Milestone—10 to 24 consecutive years
- Lifetime—25 or more consecutive years
Donors who set up a recurring gift will automatically be welcomed into the 1855 Loyalty Society. Making a recurring gift is also the easiest way to keep your legacy of giving intact and can keep you moving toward another level of rewarding engagement with SI.
