Support Cardinal Stritch University

Your gifts make a BIG impact

We are grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends that demonstrates their ongoing support of Cardinal Stritch University.

Our promise to you is that your gift will be used wisely and will help to preserve our proud heritage.

There are two ways you can invest in Stritch's mission:

  • Recurring Monthly Gift. Your monthly gift is a powerful message of support. Like our dedicated faculty and staff, you will help our students achieve their academic, career and personal goals. 
  • One-Time Gift. The unprecedented times we are living in have led to unprecedented financial need among our students. Your generosity will support our students' pursuit of their dreams.

Santa Chiara Scholarship Fund

Your gift to the Santa Chiara Fund helps preserve the legacy established by the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi of ensuring access to quality higher education for all who seek it. The Santa Chiara Fund supports students "approve the better things" as they discover their purpose in life.
