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.

Dear Advocates,

Thank you. Thank you for your leadership, commitment, and generosity to Saint John's. Your incredible support helped us gain 1,400 donors (and counting) for Student Fund scholarships today. Be proud of what you've accomplished and how you've engaged your classmates with Saint John's.

Let's see how close we can reach 1,600 donors in the next hour. Know any night owls? Shoot them a text and invite them to give!

Thank you for everything you do for SJU.

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.
