Thank You!


Thank you to every single donor, volunteer, advocate, match sponsor, alumnus, parent, student, and employee who made #giveSJUday 2021 a great success for Saint John's Student Fund scholarships.

Over $610,000 raised for scholarships from more than 1,450 donors makes Saint John's very proud and grateful for your generosity and support.

We'll announce final donor and dollar totals Thursday afternoon after we've tallied the student callers' gifts from tonight.

Until then, thank you, and Go Johnnies.

We Did It! But We're Not Done Yet


THANK YOU! We reached our #giveSJUday goal of 1,400 donors. Thanks to each of you for your generosity and commitment to Saint John's. You make an immediate impact in Johnnies' lives!

But we're not done yet! An anonymous donor is offering a $5K challenge match if we get another 200 donors before 12 am CST. Can you help us spread the word to unlock another $5K?

Over 30 class matches remain and the top of the Class Leaderboard remains very close between 1972, 1983, 2010, 1991, and 1982. 

Thank you for all you do for SJU! Let's finish strong and unlock another $5K for Student Fund scholarships.
