ST. IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA SAID...

“Go forth and set the world on fire.” Your philanthropy ignites the education and formation of men for others and their futures. 
 
“Act as if everything depended on you; trust as if everything depended on God.” Your investment; a Higher return.

“Love is shown more in deeds than in words.” Your giving communicates your caring to countless current and future students you may never knowingly meet.

“To give, and not to count the cost…” As a donor to Rockhurst High School, the benefits of your gift far outweigh the cost by the impact your dollars generate every day. 

To be a part of creating Ignatian leaders, “men for others” in the Roman Catholic, Jesuit college preparatory tradition, click on any of the giving opportunities pages below to learn more about activating your impact.

The Eyrie Fund

(Formerly the Annual Fund)

Eyrie Fund contributions are annual undesignated gifts when the donor allows Rockhurst High School to use the funds as needed, generally for operational support, to relieve the strain on tuition and assist with managing daily programs. Eyrie Fund gifts are used to provide students with the best college preparatory education possible; develop real-world STEAM curriculum; offer life affirming spiritual formation and community service; give $2.7 million in tuition assistance grants to families; and more.

Funds raised through the Eyrie Fund impact Rockhurst High School students directly to keep Jesuit formation a vibrant option for families in Kansas City.

Please note:
Donors can use their Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) to grant to nonprofits in support of their events, but here are a few things to keep in mind: 
  • Tickets, Tables and Sponsorships 
The full cost to attend events (both the tax-deductible and non-tax-deductible portions) must be paid from a donor’s personal bank account. Any remaining sponsorship costs can be paid for using a DAF, as long as no more than incidental benefits are received by the DAF advisor or donor in return. Logo or name recognition in event materials is not considered a more thanincidental benefit. 
    • Here is an example of what a DAF can pay for at an event: A $5,000 event sponsorship includes a table for 10 and a donor name or logo in event materials. If the lowest ticket price to attend the event is $100, the donor will pay $1,000 for the table personally ($100 × 10 seats at the table) and can use their DAF to cover the remaining $4,000. 
  • Raffles and Auctions
A DAF can be used to support fund-a-need calls for donations at charitable events. DAFs cannot be used to purchase raffle tickets or auction items.
 
A donor’s financial advisor can help calculate what portion of the event sponsorship can come from their DAF based on the benefits received. If a donor chooses not to accept any more than incidental benefits associated with a sponsorship, the entire amount may be paid through their DAF.
