New Sustainers

Come along with us! Every gift to Saint Ben’s makes a meaningful impact for current and future Bennies. In addition to the perks listed below, new sustainers receive a custom set of notecards featuring the stained glass work of of Sister Jacquelin Dubay, OSB, in 1957.  In Sister Jacquelyn’s design, the dark colors below represent life on earth and move gracefully into the lighter colors above representing the ascent from the earthly to the eternal. The window was installed in Sacred Heart Chapel, where it remained until 1983. It was given as a gift from Saint Benedict’s Monastery to the College of Saint Benedict to celebrate the college’s centennial in 2013 and is now displayed in the Clemens Library.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Are Sustainers required to renew or update their gifts each year? 

There is no need for Sustainers to renew their gits each year. A Sustainer gift will automatically continue unless the donor chooses to cancel or change it.

What are the advantages of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

Sustainers can make a direct withdrawal from your checking or savings account to increase the impact of your Sustainer gift. EFT is a direct withdrawal, so there are no credit card fees, and that means more of the gift will directly support student scholarships.
