Gonzaga students thrive thanks to the generous support of our alumni, parents, and friends.
Your support makes so much possible on Eye Street—from exceptional academics and an unrivaled athletic program to robust arts programming and a newly renovated campus. Most importantly, it supports the formation of boys into a brotherhood of Men for Others who recognize Christ in those most in need.
Tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating a Gonzaga student, and many of our families receive financial assistance so their sons can attend. Gifts from members of the Gonzaga community are key, providing support for Gonzaga’s daily operations and enhancing the experience of all of our boys.
If you have questions or would like to learn more about the many ways you can support Gonzaga, please feel free to contact me at 202-370-5354 or firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of all the young men of Eye Street, thank you for your generosity.

De’Shean, Class of 2019
“What makes Gonzaga different is the people. Everyone isn’t the same at this school. You’ve got the sports guys, the tech guys, the science guys, the math guys, the Pokemon guys. Different parts of the day, I hang with different types of people. And I think the male teachers here really set the example for us. We treat others with respect. Men for Others—we live by that every day.”
Gianluca, Class of 2021
“I really enjoy working in the McKenna Center and doing Campus Kitchen. It’s been a really good experience, meeting all the people we deliver food to, sometimes having small conversations with them, and getting to know them a little bit. Then we keep seeing them again. Having the McKenna Center right here, it’s taught me to be more aware of the people who are outside the bubble we live in.”
Matthew, Class of 2019
“My freshman year coming in I looked up to the older guys and saw how close they were. They were all sitting at one lunch table—whether one person rowed crew, did theater, or played lacrosse—they were all talking to each other. From my freshman table, I’d be looking at them and think, that’s pretty cool, I want to be like them one day. That’s the brotherhood right there—you’re friends with everyone, and you’re there to help if someone needs it. Seeing that as a freshman and now hopefully being able to live that and show that to the younger guys is a really cool experience.”
Hunter, Class of 2019
“There’s no kid at Gonzaga who does just one thing. The way the school is built, you’re encouraged to try different things and find what you like. I play football, I ran track, I do Independent Art, I’m in the Poets and Writers Club, and I’m in ONYX. I never thought I would write poetry, but I fell in love with it. Poetry is short, it’s to the point, but it also has this mysterious style to it. Everyone can read the same poem, but each person will get a different meaning out if it.”
John, Class of 2019
“As a Jesuit school, Gonzaga is more challenging than other places. It’s a lot, between the workload, the practices, the commuting back and forth. But what we’re going to take away after we graduate is being able to manage our time and be on top of everything at once. During my four years here, I’ve learned to balance it all so that I can be successful in the classroom, on the field, and everywhere in between.”
Luca, Class of 2019
“We have conversations about pretty much anything and everything—sports, politics, what’s going on outside in the world. We know we can be honest with each other and we can all have our opinions. We’re never going to bring somebody down about what they said. There’s a trust and respect here, that’s what the brotherhood is all about.”
Marcus, Class of 2019
“Running track has had a big impact on me. We practice together, we build each other up and challenge each other to go beyond what we think we’re capable of. Being a part of a team has taught me that the team is as strong as its weakest link. When I’m at practice, I don’t just worry about myself and how I can improve my running form. I help out the freshmen and sophomores because at the end of the day, we’re all a team.”
Jason, Class of 2019
“I went on a service trip last summer to a community that lives in one of the poorer areas of Kansas City. We worked in a community garden and on houses that needed repair. A big part of what the community emphasizes is living simply. We didn’t have our phones, we didn’t eat meat, we only showered twice the whole week. The idea behind that was to become more aware of what certain people have to go through, and to stand in solidarity with them. If you understand more deeply what other people’s lives are like, you are more encouraged to do something to make a difference. That experience definitely stuck with me. Living in that kind of environment, even for that short amount of time, had an effect on me.”
