A Scholarship Fund is a sum of money that is invested. The income from this money is used to support Jesuits in formation, old and new ministries, and senior Jesuits.
A Founder's Fund is a sum of at least $50,000.00 that is invested and annually contributes to the expenses of educating a Jesuit, supporting old and new ministries, or caring for a senior Jesuit.
A moderate sum will found (begin) a Scholarship, but a Scholarship is not completed until $15,000.00 has been contributed.
When a Jesuit dies, a Memorial Scholarship is established in his name. Family and friends are invited to contribute to these funds.
