In addition to The Brebeuf Fund and other annual fundraising programs, several fundraising events provide annual support and benefit specific, timely academic, capital, and/or athletic initiatives. For upcoming Alumni Events, visit this page.
Begun in 1979 by then-President Rev. James P. Gschwend, S.J., the annual President’s Dinner honors those members of the Brebeuf Jesuit community whose contributions to the school and the larger society exemplify the Jesuit philosophy of men and women for others. Honorees receive the President’s Medal, the highest level of recognition bestowed by the school. For more information on opportunities to sponsor the President’s Dinner, buy tickets, and learn about this year’s honoree, please click here.
Hosted by the Brebeuf Jesuit Mothers Association, Bistro is Brebeuf’s largest annual fundraiser and a night not to be missed! With a new, exciting theme each year, Bistro offers guests the opportunity to bid on fabulous live and silent auction items, enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and join together as a community for the betterment of Brebeuf. Join us in February for this annual event.
