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 College is facing many challenges due to the global pandemic. As we enter a new academic year, our support for CSS students is unwavering. Our Saints will continue to rise up to meet the challenges of a new era. Your support will help ensure the College continues to meet all the educational, health and safety needs of current and future Saints in this unprecedented time.
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.
St. Scholastica was founded to serve individuals who were traditionally underserved and underrepresented in education. In it's 109th academic year, 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 through scholarships. Our goal is to raise $500 for every incoming freshman beginning their journey.
These are suggested giving amounts, but any investment will support our Saints!
*$1,000 investors qualify as members of the CSS President's Circle and will also receive associated benefits.
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.
It's almost our favorite time of year, no not Christmas, it's Give to CSS Day! On March 25, we are calling on our entire Saints community to support our current and future CSS students. This 24-hour online event is your chance to increase your impact and join the entire CSS community in showing support for our Saints.
Participate anywhere in the world! This online event is open to anyone. Check back on March 25 and you will be directed to our event portal.
Your gifts will not only impact our student's education, but their entire CSS experience. Additionally, you could increase your impact through our challenges or matches!
Share your favorite memory of CSS on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) using the hashtags #SaintsRiseUp and #GiveToCSSDay and you will be entered into a drawing for a pair of Bold and Benedictine socks. When on Facebook, be sure to tag us @St.ScholasticaAlumni
