Why Give to Cor Jesu
All alumnae gifts to the Annual Fund are added to that class' scholarship, unless otherwise directed by the donor. Each graduating class of Cor Jesu has an Endowed Scholarship in its name. These monies are held in the Endowment Fund in perpetuity, and only the earnings are used for need-based scholarships. Once a class scholarship balance reaches $11,000, 5% of the balance is awarded each year to a Cor Jesu student. 

Below are the principal balances of each class scholarship and the amount of assistance that was awarded as of 7/1/2020
