The education students receive at the St. Jerome Institute equips them with the Truth, draws them to the highest of goods, immerses them in the deepest questions, and gives voice to the deepest desires of their hearts.
It is an education that is urgently needed in our time, and one that should be accessible and available to all!
This fund will help students of great merit receive the abundant fruits of an SJI education with the help of financial aid.
We cannot flourish individually without deep roots in our communities and without fertilizing the soil in which we are rooted. Which is why we invite you to support the Scholarship Fund. By providing students with tuition assistance you are helping to create a culture of beauty, love, and friendship which is at the very heart of SJI’s vision.
Great friends of SJI have generously offered to match gifts up to $2,000 during the launch of St. Jerome’s Scholarship Fund. Please consider this wonderful opportunity to support a young man or woman’s high school education and have the impact of your gift doubled!
Take Advantage of the 2021 CARES Act tax deduction to Support SJI! Previously, taxpayers could itemize deductions or take the standard deduction, but could not do both. Now, the CARES Act allows the approximately 86% of taxpayers who choose to take the standard deduction, to also take an above-the-line deduction for charitable gifts of up to $300 for individuals and $600 for married couples.
What this means for you, is you can now deduct charitable gifts of $300 or $600 from your gross income to determine your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), and then further reduce your AGI by deducting an additional $12,400 or $24,800 (the 2021 standard deduction for individuals and married couples), to decrease your 2021 tax liability.
The recipients of the Scholarship Fund will be chosen by the Enrollment Committee using the criteria in the Financial Aid application for demonstrated financial need and on demonstrated merit.
If a donor would like to sponsor a full scholarship of $15,000 or offer a matching gift during the Scholarship Fund, please contact our development director, Monica Guza to make arrangements. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 202.788.2706 Ex: 402
