The Roccario-Braithwaite Legacy Fund

In honor of Sally and Erica, we establish this fund to ensure excellent graduate support
for the young women who graduate from Brooklyn Jesuit Prep.

Jake Braithwaite at Fairfield University Summer Camp

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 saw such potential 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 fund to sustain our robust graduate support program. The funds raised will allow our Graduate Support Director to support our 8th graders and graduates in their journeys to and through high school. This program has led to some outstanding results in recent years, including BJP alumnae earning scholarships to Cathedral, Notre Dame, Dominican Academy, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Fontbonne, St. Saviour, and more.

Your gifts are an investment in their future, with hope that generations to come will benefit from the seeds planted here. We thank you for your consideration and your generosity.
