The Impact of Giving

Philanthropy is crucial to St. John’s College. By providing support for the academic program and financial aid, philanthropy truly enriches the student experience at the college and enables St. John’s to achieve its high educational ideals.

By making a gift to St. John’s College, alumni, parents, and friends ensure the vitality of the college today and into the future.

Giving Priorities for St. John’s

Financial Aid

Costs for the college's need-based financial aid program have risen in recent years, the result of pressure on families dealing with uncertainty in the economy. Gifts for financial aid make the difference in the college’s ability to keep St. John’s affordable.

Academic Excellence

Philanthropic support makes all the difference in the classroom. It gives St. John’s College the means to maintain small classes, hire and retain a brilliant and dedicated faculty, and sustain a community of learners invigorated by ideas.

Enhancing Student Life

The college years are a time of growth and the St. John’s community is a place to thrive. Philanthropic gifts dedicated to student life enhance the student experience both in and out of the classroom by supporting the athletic program, providing internships that develop career-building skills, and strengthening the college’s wellness programs and counseling resources.

World Outreach Programs

The work of St. John’s extends far beyond our two campuses. Gifts to the outreach programs bring the college out into the world through programs that provide continuing education for high school teachers, music and fine arts activities on both campuses, a national media program to “get the word out” about the college, and many other activities.
