75 Days of Giving helps secure gifts for Annual Fund

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 8:10:00 PM

More than $350,000 has been secured from alumni, parents and friends toward the Cardinal Stritch University Annual Fund, with an unrestricted goal is $1 million by July 31, 2013.

Since tuition does not fully cover the cost of a Stritch education, gifts to the unrestricted Annual Fund are critically important dollars that help maintain, in part, these important programs:

  • Student financial aid
  • Professional development for faculty
  • Facility upgrades—most recently upgrades at the Kenosha and Beloit sites
  • Library resources
  • Guest speakers and lecturers
  • Franciscan Pilgrimage program for students, faculty and staff
  • Campus Ministry

Another $425,000 in restricted gifts have been received for specific purposes and endowment. 

The recently completed 75 Days of Giving for Stritch appeal was a component of year-end gifts to the Annual Fund. The 75-day appeal, which ran Oct. 18- Dec. 31 in honor of the University’s 75th anniversary, featured videos that highlighted the impact that gifts to the Annual Fund have on the University and its students.
