Roccario Legacy Fund

BJP's Jesuit Scholastic honors his grandmother

Jesuit scholastic Jake Braithwaite, SJ is descended from two highly intelligent women. Both Sally Braithwaite and Erica Roccario attended college, Rosemont College and the University of Paris, respectively. Thanks to their rich educational background, both were highly cultured women who passed intellectual curiosity onto their grandson.

In his time at Brooklyn Jesuit Prep, Jake has seen such possibilities in the many intelligent girls that pass through our doors. Unfortunately, the girls private high schools in New York City have less capacity to fund rich educational experiences for their students than do the boys schools.

In honor of Sally and Erica, we establish this discretionary fund to support graduates of Brooklyn Jesuit Prep. The funds raised will allow our Graduate Support Director to fill in the gaps that the current system leaves gaping.

Your gifts are an investment in their future, with hopes that generations to come will benefit from the seeds planted here.
