December Alumni Challenge 2014

What a spectacular December we had!!!

Over $58,000 was raised this year for the December Alumni Challenge! That even exceeds the fabulous year we had last year. Thank you so much to all our alumni for making this challenge a reality. And thank you to Kate Pew Wolters '78 for issuing the challenge!

As of the end of the calendar year the Annual Fund is at 69% of it's goal of $1.2 million. This wouldn't be possible without all our alumni and friends. Thank you...from all of us here in the Foundation Office. We are well on our way to achieving our goal for this fiscal year.

About the Annual Fund

The Annual Fund strives to continue to provide bright, worthy students with financial aide. Without this scholarship fund, many students would not be able to attend the College.


  • Aquinas provides more than $19 million in scholarships every year.


  • Nearly 90% of Aquinas students are on scholarship provided by the college.


  • 20% of our students are the first generation in their family to attend college. Your donation can affect the lives of an entire family.


  • Over 80% of graduates are Michigan residents upon entering college. After graduation, over 70% of students stay in Michigan. An Annual Fund gift gives to more than just a single student; it’s a gift back to the community.

A Testimonial from a Saint:


"As a parent who has put two children (as well as myself – several times now) through college, I understand the financial challenges families face, especially funding a private college education. I also understand the lifelong benefits of an Aquinas education – and am looking forward to making the AQ experience accessible to those who want it."

- Kim Holt, '94
