There are a variety of ways to support Brooklyn Jesuit Prep with a meaningful contribution.
Contribute to the BJP Annual Fund.
Sponsoring a student creates lifelong friendships and allows you to fund specific items for that student.
We welcome in-kind donations! Whether it's a book donation for our library, unwanted office furniture, or some vital school supplies, your in-kind donation allows us to stretch our budget further. Email development with any inquiries!

If you are 70 and ½ years old or older, you are required to withdraw a “required minimum distribution” from your IRAs each year. You can satisfy all or part of that requirement by giving up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity like Brooklyn Jesuit Prep. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
Contributing appreciated securities is a great way to make a gift to BJP! Donors may be eligible for an income tax deduction of the full market value and/or avoid any capital gains tax. Please consult your tax adviser for information regarding your personal situation.
Many companies and employers offer matching contributions for employees' donations. Check with your employer to see if yours does.
