The Kathy Krueger Student Support Fund
Join Kathy in supporting Prep students. "The most important gift we can give to Seattle Prep is to do our part. The Student Support Fund is an incredible investment. It’s the best use of my money and your gift will help all kids have this opportunity."
A Commitment to Cura Personalis
Many students dream of a Jesuit education, but need financial help to make it a reality. Tuition assistance helps those dreams come true. Yet it doesn’t cover many of the essential tools students need to be successful.
Lunch money, the bus ride to Prep, a Surface, books and ebooks. The Kathy Krueger Student Support Fund helps fill the gap for the 31% of Prep students receiving financial assistance with all the “extras” that aren’t really extra. These resources are a crucial part of a successful college preparatory education for all our students.
As Director of College Counseling, Kathy managed the Student Support Fund, ensuring that all students had what they needed for success. This commitment to students is why we are proud to announce the newly renamed Kathy Krueger Student Support Fund.
The surprise announcement was made at the 2017 SPREE Auction. In 2020 Kathy transitioned to an emeritus role and continues to generously volunteer her time in the Alumni Office.
Kathy’s vocation to help kids and the funds that put this mission into action makes Prep who we are. “Without it,” says Andy Hendricks ’83, “we wouldn’t be a Jesuit school. As a Jesuit school, we believe that we’re here to change the world, to make it a better place. All of us look at our children as treasures. We have a duty to help each other out. I think it does take a village to give a good education.”
The median Student Support Fund award is $2,763 per student. Next year these awards for books, Surfaces, lunches and bus fare will top more than $154,000.
Every gift to the Kathy Krueger Student Support Fund helps provide tools for each student to make the most out of their Catholic Jesuit education, an education that empowers them to achieve their dreams and change the world.
