Give to St. Kate's Day

Thank you

It was our biggest day of giving ever! Because of you, we surpassed our goal with $523,263 raised by 843 donors to support Katies!

Together, we did it.

Your generosity makes it possible for us to educate women to lead and influence and we are so grateful.

Gratitude from Our Students

Here are some of the messages our students wrote yesterday to you, our donors, thanking you for your support.

"Thank you for helping to make our educational dreams a reality! We can't thank you enough for supporting us and believing in St. Kate's!"

"Thank you for all of the contributions you provide, it is really appreciated. I'm a single mother pursuing my nursing degree and I could not thank you enough."

"Thank you for supporting all students (especially women like me!) so we can become powerful forces in society!"

The challenge fund results are in!

With the show of support throughout the day we were able to release ALL of our challenge funds, doubling the impact of your gifts (new donors' gifts were tripled!).
