Annual Giving

Why Give to the Annual Fund

The Annual Fund represents strength in Saints’ numbers. No matter the size of your contribution, you join a community of donors devoted to equipping Aquinas to be immediately responsive in its support of campus-wide academic, operational and extracurricular programs.

Why We Need You!

The greater number of donors to Aquinas, the easier it is to reach our increased 2018-19 Annual Fund goal – we need you to contribute and inspire your friends and former classmates to do so too!

Participation in the Annual Fund is important. A strong participation rate impacts Aquinas’ standing and rank among peer schools, and represents a gauge by which foundations and corporations award grants.
