Current Involvement 

Our team and my family currently sponsor two students at the Washington Jesuit Academy (WJA). Twice a year we visit the students at the school to learn more about how our support is impacting their lives in and out of the classroom. During the holidays sponsors pick out presents for the kids based on their interests. 

Purpose of WJA

The mission of the Washington Jesuit Academy is to provide a high-quality and comprehensive education to boys from low-income communities, offering them a safe, rigorous academic setting and advancing their spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth.

Quote on why you give

As the beneficiary of a Jesuit education I feel compelled to help other less fortunate kids reap the rewards of a strong educational foundation. There is no other organization in the Washington DC area that has improved the futures of so many kids.
