Why Give to Cor Jesu

Accessibility: The Doorway to Opportunity

Thank you for considering Cor Jesu Academy in your annual giving plans!

This year, more than ever, Cor Jesu’s focus is about opening doors of opportunity. About making the exceptional Cor Jesu academic, spiritual and social experience – both for now and the future – accessible to the bright and capable young women who will be tomorrow’s leaders. Your donation to the Annual Fund opens those doors to students, providing accessibility that…

• is FINANCIAL, with approximately 40% of our families receiving financial aid;
• fosters FORMATION OF THE WHOLE PERSON, with an educational program that furthers spiritual formation, critical-thinking skills and leadership development;
• promotes students’ FUTURE, with collaborative professional relationships for career discovery.
Gifts made to the 2019-20 Annual Fund will help Cor Jesu continue to expand the meaning of college preparatory. The doors of opportunity that are first opened with admission to CJ are yielding endless possibilities and forming tomorrow’s leaders to transform the world for good!

For Parents, Grandparents and Friends:

Your Annual Fund donations help offset the $2,500 financial gap between the annual cost to educate a Cor Jesu student ($18,400) and the amount of tuition we charge ($15,900). Current parents have the option of including their Annual Fund donation with their tuition payment(s) or choosing to make it separately. At Cor Jesu, we place primary emphasis on participation, rather than on dollar amount. We believe that “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be” (MT 6:21) and so, to ensure the commitment and unity of our CJ community, we ask you to truly give from the heart, at whatever amount you feel is right for you and your family.   

For Alumnae: 

Your gift to the Annual Fund is added to your Class Endowed Scholarship. A list of the principal balance for each class is available here. To learn about the alumnae recurring-gift program, the Heart to Heart Society, check out the details here.
