I hope you and your family are well. We are all facing unique challenges during these unprecedented times. Just as you are taking care of yourself and your loved ones, we at Brother Martin High School continue to “meet the needs of our changing world.”
Over the last 151 years, the Brothers of the Sacred Heart at St. Aloysius, Cor Jesu and Brother Martin have insisted that we do not refuse a student solely based on whether a family can afford to pay tuition. We have been blessed to be able to hold true to that value. As you would expect over the last few months, we have experienced a dramatic increase in financial aid requests. Our mission calls us to respond. With the assistance of you, our alumni, we will meet this challenge. We ask that you please consider one of the options listed below. If you received financial assistance during your time as a student, whether through grant money, work study, or academic scholarship, now would be the perfect time to “pay it forward” and assist a current Crusader family in need.
Option 1 – A one-time gift or a 12-month pledge for any amount
$5.00, $10.00, or any amount you are comfortable gifting would be helpful. The money will go directly into a general financial aid endowment and will be used as needed to help a family.
Option 2 – A one-time gift to a specific student and family in the range of $1,500.00 to $11,500.00
A financial aid award to a family can fall anywhere in this range, depending on need. With over 125 financial aid applications for the upcoming school year, your entire pledge will be awarded to a family with the dollar amount that you donate. You will also have an opportunity to meet the student you are assisting if you wish.
Option 3 – A fully endowed named scholarship at $75,000.00
This is a gift of perpetuity. This allows us to take the interest earned off your gift each year and award that amount to a student in need. If you are interested in receiving more information about payment options for an endowment, please call or email me.
We appreciate your prayerful consideration in this matter.
Ametur Cor Jesu...Ametur Cor Mariae!
When considering a gift to the St. Aloysius Century Foundation to benefit Brother Martin High School there are many creative ways, ways in which Brother Martin, you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time. You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime. You can give stock and realize larger tax savings. You can get a monthly check for life in return for your gift. Such giving techniques are called “planned gifts” because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and Brother Martin High School.

Brother Martin Fund
The Brother Martin Fund includes our annual appeals: Alumni, Parents, and Grandparents. Funds from these annual appeals are used to help meet the needs of our students, attract and retain the finest faculty and to help minimize annual tuition increases. The needs of our students include facility upgrades, academic programs, technology infrastructure and classroom equipment and materials. As Brother Jean Sobert, S.C. always said, “It’s all about the students.”
Your contribution to our annual Parent Giving is used to assist with the school’s operating budget in three ways: to help minimize annual tuition increases, to attract and retain the finest faculty; and to provide the best learning environment possible by initiating advancements in technology, maintaining a low student-teacher ratio, and by continuing to provide a clean and orderly environment.
Alumni Giving provides you the opportunity to support the mission of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and their lay partners. Your commitment helps to ensure our tradition of academic excellence, spiritual enrichment, extracurricular achievement and faculty distinction at Brother Martin. Giving back to your alma mater signifies a vote of confidence for Brother Martin High School and our faculty and staff as we continue to prepare young men for life. As Brother Jean Sobert, S.C. always said, “It’s all about the students.”
