We are a small independent group of alumni from St. Ignatius College Preparatory who have banded together to provide financial assistance to low-income, minority students of color — primarily from Catholic elementary schools in the San Francisco Bay Area — who have been accepted for admission into St. Ignatius College Preparatory.
We are not employees of, nor affiliated with, St. Ignatius College Preparatory in any official capacity. We have no voice in the administration of the school or the formation of school policy. We have no financial connection with St. Ignatius, other than as independent donors to low-income students at the school. Our entire, limited focus is on reinforcing the tradition of diversity at our alma mater, by making its world-class education more easily available to low-income, minority students of color.
