|Where You Can Give|
There are many areas where your gift will have a lasting impact on the University and continue to support our mission of educating leaders of faith and character.
The St. Thomas Fund
Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders Today! The St. Thomas Fund allows current and future students to benefit from an education rooted in the Basilian tradition and Catholic values. This general scholarship fund is the cornerstone of our student financial aid program. Annually, the University awards more than $13 million in institutional aid to deserving students.
Your investment in our students through The St. Thomas Fund enables us to provide them with a high-quality, liberal arts education. These future leaders of faith and character are making a positive impact on our community and around the world.
