Create a lasting legacy for the San Miguel scholars of tomorrow by including San Miguel School Chicago in your estate plans. By establishing a legacy gift, you may be able to make a larger contribution than you thought possible while realizing significant financial and tax benefits. Your foresight and thoughtful planning will be life-changing for the next generation of San Miguel scholars.

Named for Christian Brother Edwin Dupré—who demonstrated what it truly means to follow the teachings of Christ during his 20 years of service to our school community as a leader, educator and mentor—the Dupré Society honors the benefactors whose estate or deferred gifts will open doors to opportunity for San Miguel scholars in the decades to come. As a Dupré Society member, you will receive regular updates from our executive director and invitations to tour our school and meet our San Miguel scholars, as well as invitations to special events, where you will have opportunities to meet fellow benefactors who share your passion for transforming lives through education.

We believe in the power of education to transform lives—and this happens every day at San Miguel School Chicago. Our legacy gift will give future generations of Back of the Yards middle schoolers the educational opportunities they need to succeed in school and in life.”

— JACK AND STEPHANIE FLYNN, Dupré Society members

“Year after year, the academic achievements and career paths of San Miguel scholars prove that
this educational system works. With that in mind, I have included San Miguel School in my estate planning. I can’t think of a better way to keep the doors of opportunity open for these deserving young people—and set them up for a brighter future.

— MIKE CHRIST, Dupré Society member
