Once you’ve assured your family’s future, help secure Gesu’s! A small fraction of your estate can transform a child’s life. It’s as simple as designating The Gesu School, Inc., in your will.

The Magis Society

Gesu’s Magis Society recognizes donors who have used planned giving to do more for the greater good. Their generosity ensures the sustainability of Gesu School and our mission for years to come.

Meet Keith Pension, a Magis Society Member:

“When I first made a will 35 years ago, I had a fairly typical focus: my stepchildren and the grandchildren I presumed would follow. When I recently sat down to update the document, I realized that the ensuing years pointed toward a major change in focus. Why, I now questioned, continue to provide for those already so very well provided for? Instead, I’d like to help open up opportunities for those who have not been so amply endowed. Of the many causes I support in life and hope to support after my death, Gesu is most important of all. For this reason, I have designated Gesu a 50% beneficiary.”
