The Saint Joseph Academy Bloodhound Ambassadors are the student philanthropic arm of the Saint Joseph Academy Office of Academy Advancement and Alumni Affairs. This group is made up of students from all grade levels and are chosen through an application process. The goals of this group are raising money to give back to the school, teaching their peers about the importance of philanthropy and staying involved with the Academy after graduation. As a group, members will learn the different ways non-profits solicit funds and the importance of cultivating and stewarding donor relationships. 


Members of the organization meet at least once a month during the school year and will plan and implement fundraisers and appeals throughout the school year. For the 2018-2019 Academic Year, Bloodhound Ambassadors hosted "I Love SJA" Week from March 12 - March 19. Ambassadors held an all-school assembly where they spoke to the student body about the importance of giving back to Saint Joseph Academy and introduced the concept of class gifts where all students are encouraged to give a gift in the amount of their graduating year, i.e. $20.19 for a student graduating in 2019. Students were given opportunities throughout the week to participate in different fundraising activities to help them reach their giving goal.
