"We believe that by supporting liberal arts Benedictine education for young women we are contributing to a bright future for our world." - Theresa Smith '81 and Mark Danielson
"I went to Catholic, Benedictine schools my whole life, from kindergarten through college. During my time at Saint Ben's, I had a scholarship (which I could keep if I maintained a B average!). That opportunity meant a lot to me, so today I want to do what I can to help other Bennies." - Harriet Hunstiger Campbell '43
"It is important that CSB continue to be financially sound, that today's students receive the financial support they need and that our goddaughters - if they choose - have the same great school to attend." - Joanne '66 & Robert Neis
“Not only did I personally have a transformative experience at Saint Ben’s, the legacy of this place has now touched the lives of so many of my family members – each having their own CSB or SJU experience. I’m so excited that one of my granddaughters is now beginning her Saint Ben’s journey as part of the class of 2020. I know that my support for student scholarships is helping to open the door for others to experience the life-changing effect of a Saint Ben’s education.” - Judy Gretsch Schmid '63
"More so today than at any other time in history, women have the opportunity to flourish, the opportunity to lead and the opportunity to truly make a difference. Saint Ben's provides the balanced foundation necessary to enable today's generation of young women to succeed and, with the proper support, hopefully the foundation for all future generations." - Chip and Brenda Ray '82
"Saint Ben's is an extraordinary school and Bennies are extraordinary women. David and I made this gift because we hope more alums and friends will respond to the challenge and invest in the young women who are students at Saint Ben's right now. They are our future leaders!" - Kathy and David Hansen
"I and my late husband Bill are grateful for all Saint Ben's offered our daughters, granddaughter and family. We want others to have the same opportunities our family has enjoyed." - Elizabeth Nilles (shown here with her granddaughter, Marie Nilles-Melchert '15)
"I learned so much at Saint Ben’s – learnings that had lasting impact and shaped me for life. I am grateful for the support that made that experience possible for me and I love that I now have the ability to help make that experience possible for other young women. Please support the campaign – it matters!" - Judy Forstner Poferl '82
"In an ever-shifting world, we firmly believe that a liberal arts education from the College of Saint Benedict provides a solid foundation for young women. The knowledge, leadership skills and confidence it inspires creates a more well-rounded and broad view of the world that liberates a multitude of possibilities and opportunities. We feel we have been blessed and see this as an opportunity to pay it forward." - Kim and Scott Blattner
"We believe in Saint Ben's because of the quality of students who are seriously involved and lively. These are enjoyable people to talk to – enthusiastic, energetic, articulate and fun." - Mary and John Lindstrom
"I give because...first of all, I'm grateful for my time at CSB and I wish that same experience for others. I appreciate and admire all that Saint Ben's does to educate and empower confident, values-based, women leaders." - Shari Rogalski '89
"Nada's commitment to the education of women leaders is at the heart of her service to Saint Ben's as a member of the Board of Trustees.

"We have had two daughters graduate from St. Ben's and could not be more pleased with both the education and preparation for life that they received." - Harvey and Cynthia Jewett
