Give CSB Day FAQ

What is "Give CSB Day"?

Give CSB Day is an online one-day challenge on Nov. 16, 2016, that will unite alumnae, faculty, staff, parents, students and friends of the College of Saint Benedict in support of the causes that matter to all of us. Each gift made online to Saint Ben's during this 24-hour period will help drive change at the college and illuminate our future.

Isn't your day of giving called "$100k in a Day"?

Three years ago we started our independent day of giving with a lofty goal of raising $100,000. Logically enough, we called it "$100K in a Day." Over the next few years, the name just stuck, even as our goals and your generosity long ago made it look out of place. We knew we needed an update, so this year we have one. It's the same great, impactful day, with a different name.

Why do you have a day of giving when people make gifts throughout the year?

Every gift to Saint Ben's matters. Having a day of giving is an opportunity to show us all the transformative work that goes on each day at CSB and how coming together can truly make a difference for our future.

Where does my gift go?

You can designate your gift to the place of your choosing. The greatest need is always current scholarships. Matching dollars will go to current scholarships regardless of your designation. For questions about the match and what qualifies, please contact Maggie Weber Utsch '00 at [email protected] or 320-363-5013.

Is there a minimum gift amount?

Gifts of all sizes are welcome. Every gift matters!

Will 100 percent of my gift go to my designated area?

Yes. Saint Ben's makes it a priority to ensure that each donor's wishes are honored.

How can I give?

  • Online: Gifts to CSB can be made using our secure online form
  • Phone: If you call in a credit card gift on Nov. 16, it will count toward our giving day goal. Simply call 320-363-5013 with a credit card to participate in this exciting challenge.
  • In-person: If you are on campus or close to campus, stop by Gorecki on Nov. 16 to make a gift in-person via credit card.

Can I mail in a check?

You can mail in a check just like you can any other day of the year, but it will not be matched or counted for Give CSB Day. Gifts that are being counted for our day of giving are gifts made online or over the phone only with a credit card. Make a gift online or call 320-363-5013 with a credit card to participate.

What are the matching gift terms?

Gifts made online or with a credit card over the phone on Nov. 16, 2016, beginning at midnight (12 a.m.) and continuing for 24 hours will be matched dollar-for-dollar until the matching dollars are exhausted. All matching funds will be given to current scholarships regardless of designation.
