In anticipation of Fr. Augustus Tolton’s impending canonization, Saint Ignatius College Prep’s Claver Society will now be known as the Tolton Society. Art Reliford ’72 began the Claver Endowment which benefits our African American students in need of financial aid. The Tolton Endowment has grown exponentially over the past 10 years we have been able to provide Tuition Assistance to over 10 students per year. In addition, the Saint Ignatius Tuition Assistance Program provides over 325 students each year with Financial Aid. With the leadership of the Tolton Society, led by Gerald S. McCarthy ’80, dozens of alumni as well as friends of the school have also been instrumental in reaching the endowment’s current total of over $996,000.
