About

While much has changed in these unprecedented times, some things have remained constant, including the commitment of our alumni community to be with and for others. This unwavering spirit sustains our Jesuit mission and has inspired the name of our annual fund campaign: Wildcat Forward: Together We Give. 

Your gift to the Annual Fund will have an immediate and lasting impact on our students. 

Please join us TODAY by:

1. Making a gift, of any amount, and sharing this campaign with your friends!

2. Becoming an "ADVOCATE" and organizing your classmates to help your class win one of the Original Joe's gift cards.

3. Visiting www.siprep.org/alumni to download a WILDCAT FORWARD jpeg poster. Take a selfie and post it on social media showing your Class Pride. Be sure to tag SI on Facebook and Instagram. 

Amazing prizes will be awarded to the classes with the:

     Most 1st Time Donors: $750 Original Joe’s Gift Card

     Best Class Giving Percentage: $750 Original Joe’s Gift Card

     Most Money Raised: $1,000 Original Joe’s Gift Card

     Most Unique Donors: $1,000 Original Joe’s Gift Card

Thank you for your loyal support and wonderful generosity!

We Are--SI!

WE. ARE. S.I.!

This is the greatest alumni association in the country!  Who else could smash all previous donor records but the SI Alumni Association --  during a PANDEMIC! Congratulations to all who participated in this year’s Annual Fund Class Challenge.

A huge shout out to the Class Reps, Board members and key volunteers who became Advocates and those who created Challenge gifts.  You are the muscle behind this association and your organizational prowess was on full display today.

Congratulations to the winning Classes!  We need to have the results certified  (by Br. Draper) before being final but it appears that the winners for MOST DONORS and MOST RAISED are Class of 1969 (again!) and Class of 1980.

You showed up for your classmates, your alma mater and most importantly for the future Ignatians who rely on tuition assistance to receive a Jesuit education, develop lifelong friendships and gain a foundation of values that can change lives, locally and globally.

On behalf of the entire St. Ignatius community,  thank you for demonstrating once again that WE ARE - - S.I.

IT'S DOWN TO THE WIRE!

We ran some preliminary numbers at Class Challenge Central and we have a super tight race for "1st Time Donor" between Classes 2002 and 2004.  Only one donation separates these two classes with Class of ’02 leading with the slimmest of margins.

We have generated over 115 "1st time donors" in this campaign and it looks like we’ll get a few more with a $750 gift card to Original Joe’s in the balance.  Good luck to these classes.  In the end, the winners are future Ignatians who will receive a great high school experience and lifelong friendships.

GO CATS!

WILDCATS CRUSHING IT!!

Thank you for helping us reach and exceed our goal of 1,500 donors!  Now we are going to see if we can set a new record of giving for the Annual Fund! 

We have one of the most generous and engaged alumni anywhere, being for and with others. It’s one of the special qualities of being a Wildcat and core to our Jesuit education.

Several classes are in the hunt for special gift cards from Original Joe’s,  and there may be another photo finish tonight—possibly a Br. Draper certified outcome, if the contest is close enough.  Here’s what we know right now:

  • Most 1st Time Donors ($750 gift card):  we have Class of 2002 in the lead but only by a few donations.  It’s still an open race.
  • Best Class Giving Percentage ($750 gift card):  two classes are within 0.1 point of winning this prize—it will come down to the last donations.
  • Most Money Raised ($1,000 gift card):  The Class of 1980 looks to have this locked up but we cannot declare them a winner just yet.
  • Most Unique Donors ($1,000 gift card):  The reigning Champs from the last campaign, Class of ’69, is still in first place, but there are several classes behind them that have demonstrated the ability to rally.


You still have time to donate—until 11:59 p.m. tonight.  Check the web page for updates until midnight,  we’ll be watching for any late movement and try to report it out.

Thank you again for making the SI ANNUAL FUND CLASS CHALLENGE a huge success. 

Give Today (tonight)!  Wildcat Forward!
