“I will help… but there is a catch!” said John Meditz in response to my request of support for the purchase of the new generator for Murray-Weigel Hall, our healthcare community in the Bronx for senior and infirm Jesuits. “I will pledge $50,000 for the next four years, if you are able to match it with other donors’ contributions,” he added with a smile.
John, an alumnus of Xavier High School ’66 in New York City and of Fairfield University ’70, has supported for many years programs for senior Jesuits at Murray-Weigel Hall and the New York Nativity Schools which recently celebrated their 40th anniversary of helping youngsters break the cycle of poverty through education. His generosity extends also to our Jesuit institutions Xavier High School and Fairfield University.
He credits his Jesuit education with “transforming a young man into a ‘man for others’.” This man for others is now in turn transforming the lives of many young men and women in Jesuit schools. He is also caring for senior Jesuits who, after so many years of service, are now in need of medical, physical, and spiritual care.
Thanks to John, Murray-Weigel Hall will have soon a new generator… but there is a catch! Will you help us meet this challenge with your gift? Please contact me for more information by clicking here.
