Giving Opportunities

Our St. John’s community has made tremendous progress since the launch of Freeing Minds in 2018. Together we rolled tuition costs back by a decade, balanced our budget, helped students persevere in a time of crisis, and secured $50 million in matching funds through the Winiarski Family Foundation Challenge.

Now we must stay the course as we aim for our next milestone: reaching our $300 million campaign goal and ensuring a strong future for St. John’s College.

Give to the Annual Fund

Give now to make an immediate difference. Your gift to the Fund for St. John’s, or any component of the Annual Fund, will go to work right away, supporting every campaign priority, from scholarships and study groups to important campus improvements.

Endow the Future
Invest in the campus experience

The $25 million Pritzker Challenge will enable St. John’s to invest $75 million in our two campuses, ensuring they remain safe, sustainable, and supportive. There are numerous opportunities to help meet the challenge and transform the places our students call home.

Leave a legacy that costs little or nothing today

A meaningful gift doesn’t always come straight from our pockets. It might instead be the gift of a legacy, thoughtfully assembled today for an impact to come.
