We believe every young man and woman on our campus has God-given gifts that can impact the greater good of society. Through the Lion’s Share Fund, we are able to provide a four-year experience for our students that is rooted in the Catholic faith, rigorous academics, and abundantly caring faculty and staff. As the main investment vehicle for annual giving, the Lion’s Share Fund enables every member of our community to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the 40% of our students who rely on tuition assistance. No gift is too small or overlooked in importance. Our students leave JSerra inspired for life — and it is your gift that makes this happen. Contribute today and support a tradition of excellence since 2003!

The Lion’s Share Fund is JSerra's chief annual giving program that supports almost every aspect of a JSerra education. Investing in the Lion’s Share Fund demonstrates your belief in JSerra's mission to grow the faith, intellect, and character of every student. This fund provides immediate, flexible resources to help support the school’s greatest needs — financial aid, visual and performing arts, our magnet programs, faculty support, campus renewal, etc
The truth is that every child at JSerra benefits from a gift to the Annual Fund. The Annual Fund allows for our school to continue providing the enriching programs, activities, and classes that will forever impact our students. Whether it be financial aid, technology enhancements, or extracurricular activities, our Lion Share Annual Fund provides vital funds to help your child have the most rewarding and fulfilling high school experience.
Absolutely! Each and every gift, no matter the amount, makes a tremendous impact in the lives of our students. Participation in the Lion’s Share Fund, at any level, means a great deal to our school and demonstrates the JSerra community’s belief in our mission of faith, intellect, and character formation. As in the story of the widow’s mite from the Gospel, what we ask from our generous benefactors is not equal giving but equal sacrifice.
Many companies offer matching gifts for employee contributions to eligible nonprofit organizations. JSerra Catholic High School is a 501(c)3 and may qualify for a double or even triple match to your donation.
Many employers will also honor volunteer hours that an employee has served to be used towards a donation for a matching gift. Some companies even match retiree or spousal gifts to nonprofits, too.
To find out if your company offers matching gifts, we recommend you search your company’s website or contact your human resources department. You may also see if your employer will match your donation using an online database search at CharityNavigator.org.
Inquire whether or not your company has a matching gift program to maximize your gift's impact. To learn more or discuss your interest in leveraging your giving, please contact 949.493.9307 Ext. 1149.
