Established in 1873, Gesu School was the parish school of the Church of the Gesu. Since its founding over 140 years ago, the school has operated with a mission to serve the local community. The name “1873 Society” refers to Gesu’s deep roots in our foundation of social justice, equality, and service.
Gesu’s 1873 Society is a giving society for annual donors who generously contribute to the school at the $1,000+ level each year.* The 1873 Society is a special group of committed individuals and charitable institutions who play a key role in supporting Gesu’s mission.
Benefits of becoming a member of the 1873 Society include:
- Receiving an annual, exclusive inside look into Gesu’s operations through our year-end summary report
- Receiving a personal greeting from a Gesu student during the year-end holiday season
- The opportunity to attend an event exclusively for 1873 Society members to meet current Gesu students and alumni
- Knowing that you play a critical role in supporting Gesu students through the power of life-changing education
