The mission of Regis is unique and enduring: to provide superior tuition-free Jesuit education and form Men for Others. On June 1, 127 young men, members of our 102nd graduating class, joined the ranks of nearly 12,000 noble hearts who have gone on to transform the world around them. In honor of the Class of 2019, as well as those who came before and those who will follow in their footsteps, the Regis community rallied together during Giving Weekend 2019 to ensure that the life-changing opportunity of a Regis education endures.
Thanks to the inspiring generosity of our alumni, families and friends, we surpassed all of our goals for the weekend, unlocking both sets of matching funds offered up by four anonymous benefactors. More than 950 donors contributed more than $900,000 in support of Regis' unique mission. Factoring in the matching funds, well over $1 million was generated to support current and future Men for Others.
"The life-changing opportunity Regis students receive would not be possible without your generosity," Rev. Daniel K. Lahart, SJ, the president of Regis, wrote to the school community. "We are so very grateful."
