Give to St. Kate's Day

Make a difference for Students

Inspired by the success last year of Give to the Max Day, sponsored by GiveMN.org, the St. Catherine Annual Fund is launching "Give to St. Kate's Day" on Monday, November 15.

Our hope is to inspire new donors to recognize the importance of the Annual Fund, which supports student financial aid, faculty resources and nearly every other aspect of the University.

The process is easy: Any time between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on November 15, log on to stkate.edu/giveonline and contribute with a credit card using our secure system.

Remember: Any amount counts. Your dollars, combined with those of other donors, make a huge difference for our students and two campuses. All who visit the site will be eligible for a raffle, with prizes throughout the day.

Can Katies still contribute through GiveMN.org? Certainly. Unfortunately this year, a 2.9 percent fee will be charged to process every donation.

What difference does that make to St. Kate's? We raised $36,000 on Give to the Max Day in 2009. Had this year's fees applied, $1,044 would have gone to fees for processing rather than directly to St. Kate's students.

Why set aside just one giving day? We want to promote the power and pleasure of giving.

Questions? Contact Annual Fund Director Stacy Rooney MAOL'06 at 651-690-8861.

Thank you.

From the Heart
