95% of the students enrolled at Wheeling Jesuit, nearly 1,151 young men and women, receive scholarship support to attend WJU. Of this total, more than 30% come from families that live below the poverty line, which is $32,000 per year for a family of four. Scholarship support ensures that qualified young men and women can access a private, Jesuit education.
That is why we are asking for your support for Gaudiosa 2019. In just three years, $400,000 has been donated towards supporting student scholarships and Gaudiosa has become one of the most popular annual events in the Ohio Valley. Gaudiosa features an elegant, seated three-course dinner and entertainment by Wheeling Jesuit students, alumni, as well as an impressive line-up of exciting local performers and ensembles. Last year's Gaudiosa attracted 315 guests.
Your sponsorship of Gaudiosa 2019 will go directly to scholarships for students who have great potential, but need financial support. Together, we can help offer a high-quality education that prepares students to live out the WJU mission of life, leadership and service.
