About

She's a Bennie with the drive to lead in this world and let her light shine. Are you ready to help her? 

Over 95% of today's Bennies rely on scholarship support to unlock the possibilities of a liberal arts education. When you answer the call to help these bright, ambitious women, you let your own light shine. 

Don’t miss this chance to join the entire College of Saint Benedict community to support the life-changing scholarships that helps so many Bennies get their start and shine on! 

Generous matching grants are in place so that your gift of any size will unlock that match and be DOUBLED (until matching dollars are exhausted). Meet our Matching Dollar Donors.


New this year - make a gift in honor of a special Bennie (like a roommate or friend), a current student, your favorite professor or other Saint Ben’s mentor (like a coach, Benedictine friend or Resident Advisor) and we’ll celebrate them on Give CSB Day. Be sure to add their name in the “In honor of” field on the giving form. 

Plus, if we have their contact information on file, we'll send a note to let them know you made a gift in their honor!

Shine a light!

It's inspiring to see so many of you shining a light on someone special in your life. Consider making a gift to honor a special Bennie (like a roommate or friend), a current student, your favorite professor or other Saint Ben’s mentor (like a coach, Benedictine friend or Resident Advisor). When you do, we’ll add their name to a Shine On poster and display it on the walls of Gorecki Fireside Lounge.

Help us fill the walls with joy and gratitude as we raise money for scholarships so that current and future Bennies can also experience a strong and supportive Saint Ben’s community!
