Saint Xavier Annual Fund
Charitable support to Saint Xavier High School enhances the many programs, equipment and facilities on the campus. Through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, St. X is able to provide a quality Catholic education in the Xaverian Brothers tradition to numerous young men each year. Through the financial assistance program and with the assistance of some of the most up-to-date teaching facilities in the area, St. X continues to deliver a well-rounded program for its diverse student population. There are many ways to make a gift to St. X. These methods of giving fit into two categories-Current Gifts and Deferred (Planned) Gifts.

Although many donors choose to allow the school to use their gifts where they are most needed, several special programs and projects are funded through restricted gifts each year. These include gifts to endowment programs and for enhanced equipment and facilities.
On occasion, Saint Xavier is presented with a unique gift opportunity that requires the institution to formally accept a gift before it is actually made to the school. For that reason, Saint Xavier reserves the right to formally review any gift, regardless of its asset form, before it is receipted.
