Areas to Support

Your gift to Brother Rice High School enhances our efforts to prepare young men academically and personally for the pursuit of excellence in college, their chosen career and life, guided always by their Catholic faith.

Each gift, no matter its size, can have a transformational impact on the life of a young man. Please give generously and pray for the success of our students.

The lifeblood of our school, the Annual Fund sustains excellence in our classrooms and represents an investment in our students and an outstanding faculty who believe in the value of a Catholic faith-based education. A portion of the Annual Fund also ensures that our campus facilities are properly maintained and technologically current.

The Lifeguard Fund, initiated by a Crusader alum to provide tuition assistance to students who faced difficult family circumstances, is now the single largest source of need-based financial aid for Crusader Families.

A gift in support of the Crusader Alumni Athletic Club or CAAC helps to ensure that our student athletes are well-equipped and prepared to carry forward the proud tradition of Brother Rice athletics.

Through the efforts of its officers and board members, the Foundation seeks to attract significant gifts to be invested for the purpose of sustaining the mission of Brother Rice High School in Chicago for years to come.

Reduce Your Illinois Income Taxes!

Make a gift to the 2020 Invest in Kids Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program and receive a tax credit of $.75 for every $1.00 you donate.  That’s right, make a $1,000 gift to the program and reduce your Illinois income tax bill by $750!

Gifts of all sizes are welcome!  Designate your gift for Brother Rice High School and you will be investing in our Crusader community while reducing the dollars you would otherwise be owing to the state.  In 2019, donors like you provided Invest in Kids scholarships for 22 Crusaders which allowed us to redirect scarce financial aid dollars to other Brother Rice families. The program is a “win-win-win” for you, for Brother Rice and for students and their families.
