WHY GIVE TO BENEDICTINE?
Because at Benedictine College…
- We are forming leaders in the Benedictine tradition, who will transform the world through their commitment to intellectual, personal, and spiritual greatness.
- Our donors gave us the means to share with prospective students the community life our campus is famous for, drawing record-setting classes. This year our enrollment is more than 1,600 students. This Fall we broke ground on our ninth new dorm since the year 2000.
- Your investment in academic excellence at Benedictine College is paying off. The respected intellectual journal First Things recognized us as one of the top 20 colleges in the United States and U.S. News and World Report raised our ranking by 15 places
- The Benedictines who founded our college have a saying: “Forward, Always Forward. Everywhere, forward.” For more than 150 years, Benedictine College has been educating men and women for the glory of God and the service of the common good. Now is the time to face the challenges of a new generation and meet them once again.

Gifts of appreciated real estate can have especially attractive tax benefits. Real estate does not have to be donated outright, but can be transferred to a charitable remainder trust to provide you with lifetime income.
Life-Income gifts provide income and have immediate tax benefits.
Remember Benedictine College in your will or estate plan.
When you make a memorial gift in someone's honor, Benedictine will send an acknowledgment to the family or to whomever you specify.
Endowed scholarships enable you to create an ongoing investment in Benedictine. They also introduce a more personal element, as they can carry a family name or can be named in honor or memory of a beloved faculty member, and they benefit specific students.
