With each specific directive, you can contribute to the programs that best align with your personal passions for the College.
In this month of Christmas we are highlighting the Faith Value. But you decide which value is your best fit. If you're undecided, giving to the Annual Fund - greatest need allows the College to utilize your gift where it is needed most.
And let's not forget about the Wege Challenge. If you're a first-time donor, or haven't given in the past five years, give at least $25 and the Wege Foundation will add $200 to your donation.
Your gift makes all the difference in the world. Invest in the Annual Fund today!
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."
