Ways To Give

Students working in a chemistry classroom

How can you support the College?

Your gift can impact students and the College in a variety of ways. Through the following giving opportunities, you can increase access for students through scholarships, support programs and facilities, create a legacy through planned giving, support special projects and so much more.

The All Saints Annual Fund is the highest priority for St. Scholastica each year. This is the most versatile support you can provide. The College will use your gift where it will do the most good, from classroom equipment to financial aid. No matter how large or small, your donation helps our students by strengthening the St. Scholastica experience.

Give to the All Saints Annual Fund

St. Scholastica was founded to serve individuals who were traditionally underserved and underrepresented in education. The College continues to strive to offer opportunity and access to future generations of Saints. Sponsor a Saint is an opportunity to directly support students who need financial assistance to complete their degree.

*$1,000 investors qualify as members of the CSS President's Circle and will also receive associated benefits.

Give to Sponsor A Saint

The All-Saints Reunion is not only a time to celebrate and reflect on your experiences as a student at the College, but an opportunity to impact future generations of Saints. Your gift through the Class Gift Program will improve the lives of our students as well as strengthen all of our academic programs.

We could not come together in 2020, but look forward to a double celebration in 2021. This means that all reunion class years that would have been celebrated in 2020, including the Class of 1970, will be celebrated during Reunion Weekend 2021: 1945, 1946, 1950, 1951, 1955, 1956, 1960, 1961, 1965, 1966, 1970, 1971, 1975, 1976, 1980, 1981, 1985, 1986, 1990, 1991, 1995, 1996, 2000, and 2001. We hope you can join us for this unprecedented and exciting weekend of festivities!

Gifts supporting any area of the College are counted towards the program and can be made in a variety of ways. You can make a contribution online, or mail a check to the College Advancement Office. Please connect with College Advancement to explore ways of giving beyond an online contribution including planned giving options, gifts of stock, retirement contributions, and insurance beneficiaries by emailing or (218) 723-5980.

The goal of planned giving is to help you plan your estate and charitable giving in a way that benefits you, your family and charity. There are several ways you can make these planned gifts and enjoy tax and income benefits. Designating a gift in your estate plan to The College of St. Scholastica will help you leave your personal legacy in a way that will sustain the College's mission. Such legacy gifts have been — and will continue to be — a valued source of support for the College.

Give to CSS Day 2021 was our most successful giving day ever! We more than doubled our participation goal. Our Saints community surpassed our expectations and more than 700 Saints participated raising more than $130,000. Gifts on Give to CSS Day will support our current and future students in a variety of ways, including through scholarships, Storm's Cupboard (CSS student food shelf), undergraduate research, program support, student conference experiences, athletics, and more. Additionally, every donor who made a gift of $75 or more received a CSS branded picnic blanket and one was donated to Student Activities in their honor. We are excited to report that more than 425 blankets will be donated to Student Activities and used to welcome new Saints to campus in the fall of 2021.
