Give to SXU

Welcome Message from the Executive Director

"Positively different, forever." These are the words that one alumna used to describe how her life was changed by the education she received at Saint Xavier University. Think about it. Could you come up with a better description of how education changed your own life?

Your gifts to Saint Xavier make a positive and permanent difference in the lives of our students. The overwhelming majority of Saint Xavier students rely on scholarship support to realize their dream of a college education. They are exceptionally diverse in their backgrounds and aspirations. But they cannot achieve their hopes on their own, and in these difficult economic times, their families cannot provide all the support the students need. Your gifts make the difference between dreams realized and those deferred.

Your gifts support student scholarships, academic excellence and the quality of student life. Quality faculty and programs are the primary reasons why Saint Xavier is among the top-ranked universities in Illinois. But excellent teachers and high-quality programs come at a price. Saint Xavier has made great strides in providing a memorable campus experience for our students, but we rely on help from people like you to support our students from enrollment through graduation.

As Chicago's oldest college, Saint Xavier continues to play a major role in providing the region with leaders for the work force of the 21st century.  In nursing, the arts and sciences, education, business and continuing and professional studies, we continue to do our part, and to do it very well. Your investment in Saint Xavier is an investment in the future of the city, the region and our nation.

For all of these reasons, we thank the thousands of alumni, businesses, foundations, organizations and friends who continue to support Saint Xavier University. Your gifts make our students' lives "positively different, forever." Thank you for your generous support!
