Gesu Gala

The Gesu Gala is an annual fundraiser that supports Gesu School in our mission to help North Philadelphia’s children to transcend all forms of poverty through comprehensive, innovative education.

The Gesu Gala supports academic and extracurricular programming that empowers students to develop their strengths, overcome challenges, and become positive, engaged members of the community and the world.

The Mark Solomon Gesu Spirit Medal

The Mark Solomon Gesu Spirit Medal honors individuals and organizations who have shown extraordinary commitment to Gesu School through their loyal advocacy and actions, and who have made a significant contribution to Gesu School’s success as a model urban elementary school.

The James F. Higgins '45 Distinguished Alumni Award

To recognize alumni achievements, Gesu created the James F. Higgins ’45 Distinguished Alumni Award, named for beloved alumnus, 2017 Spirit Medalist, and Trustee James F. Higgins. We look forward to honoring many alumni who embody Jim’s legacy through their success, heart, Gesu pride, and dedication.
