About

Make your gift, upload your personal plea video and become an advocate now to help us reach our goal!

The impact a Saint Ben's education can have on women is considerable. Combine that with the leadership and self-confidence that develops in college athletics and there's no telling where it could take her.

Our goal is to rally 500 donors!

Player, parent, fan – whatever your connection is to a CSB team, that team will be counting on you to help make sure our student-athletes get the resources they need. And your gift will go directly to the team(s) you choose! Make your gift then rally your friends on social media to join you.

If you have questions or prefer to make a gift over the phone, please call 320-363-5013.

So much to celebrate!


The second annual CSB Athletics Give Day has turned out to be one for the record books!

And with just over an hour remaining, there is still time left for one last rally. 

Who will end up on top of our leaderboard at 11:59 p.m.? Can we hit 700 donors to honor Mike Durbin's 700th win tonight as CSB head basketball coach? We know that Bennies are always up for the challenge, so let's go for it!

Student-Athlete Spotlight

Maddie Schmitz ’21 shares how CSB athletics has impacted her life on and off the court.

Did you know that according to an Ernst & Young survey of over 800 executives at American companies with annual revenue of $250 million …

• 96% of women in C-suite positions played team sports growing up – 55% at a university level.

• 72% of women agreed that women with a sports background work more effectively in teams than those without.

College athletics develops leadership, commitment, focus and time management skills for our student-athletes. At the same time, it gives them the chance to form connections that will last a lifetime.

Help us continue to rally to reach our goal of 500 donors!

Athletics Give Day Matching Gift


A special thank you to the John and Margie Wiehoff Foundation for their generous $20,000 matching gift! When you make a gift to support CSB Athletics Give Day an additional $40 will be released until we hit our 500 donor goal. The first $10,000 of the match will go to CSB basketball and the second $10,000 will go to Bennie Gamechangers.

Margie Wiehoff ’84, current CSB Trustee and former CSB basketball player, said this about their gift, “Our Foundation offered the athletics give day match to inspire others to support Saint Ben’s excellent athletics program. Through the financial gifts of all of us, more young women will have the chance to gain friendships, support good health, and learn discipline by becoming Bennie athletes.”
