Ways to Give
There are many ways to help the mission of our St. Jean Baptiste stay strong via your financial support. Without it, SJB would not stay open.
Close to 100% of all students at St. Jean Baptiste live below the poverty line, and almost all these young girls are on some sort of academic, merit-based and/or financial aid scholarship. 100% of the student body graduate in four years and attend college. Our student body would be at SJB without this scholarship aide, and outside support in any form is paramount the school's present and future stability.
There are many ways to give, with a variety of methods to provide support to our school, and to our students. We have an Annual Appeal Fund for support to the overall mission of the school. These contributions can be provided without stipulation (for overall operating needs) but also to specifically fund one of our many Flagship programs and activities as part of our academic and extracurricular experiences at SJB.
The school also has the most important "Sponsor a Jeanite" program. Here, your monies (and you) are directly connected to an individual student or students. You provide direct scholarship aid to a student and follow her for four years at SJB, getting her report cards, making a personal connection if desired, and even getting a "slice" over Christmas at our Sponsor a Jeanite Pizza Party.
You may also choose to provide scholarship and overall aide through our St. Jean Baptiste Anniversary Gala, held on May 21st, 2020 at 583 Park in Manhattan (cocktails at 6 pm, dinner at 7 pm). All proceeds of this Gala will go to scholarship aid and will honor the 90th Anniversary of the school and the 400th Anniversary of the birth of St. Marguerite Bourgeoy, the foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame.
If you have any interest in helping to support our mission, please contact Kathryn Collins directly at email@example.com or at St. Jean's at (212) 288-1645.
