The Giving Blend

The Saint Ben's experience has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of young women since its founding in 1913. Help strengthen and sustain the Saint Ben's experience for Bennies of today and the next 100 years through your financial support.


Today. Tomorrow. Always.

Your support for the College of Saint Benedict can benefit students -- and our global neighborhood -- today, tomorrow, and always.

Gifts to the Annual Giving Program provide immediate scholarships to deserving students today.

Endowment gifts provide ongoing support for scholarships, fellowships, academic programs, research, campus enhancement, and so much more.

Planned gifts - such as will bequests, life insurance policies, or charitable gift annuities - can strengthen both the Annual Giving Program and endowment in the future.

What's the perfect blend? That's entirely up to you based on your financial goals and charitable intentions.

We'd love to help you identify gift opportunities that match your priorities and passions.

How do endowments work? 

Endowment gifts secure an exceptional educational experience. And, these gifts keep giving year after year. How?

Gifts are invested in the college's investment portfolio, and each year, approximately 5% is drawn to fund scholarships, programs, professorships, etc.



Contribute to an existing endowment or establish an endowment with a one-time gift, a pledge payable over a few years, a planned gift, or any combination of these.

The Green Fund


Sustainability. It's not a word found in the Rule of Saint Benedict, yet it's at the heart of our heritage. More than 1,500 years of humility, stability, and stewardship underscore our belief in the sacredness of Earth and the life it supports. 

Today, sustainability builds on this tradition. Saint Ben's can offer the world a better way to live. This is where ideas flourish, where the long-term impacts of our actions are considered, and where future leaders are educated.

The Green Fund supports initiatives from students, faculty, staff and the monastic community to promote sustainability on campus and around the world.

Support the Green Fund with an outright gift, planned gift, or combination of the two.
