Give to St. Kate's Day Q&A

Give to St. Kate’s Day is our biggest annual day of giving! On this day, the St. Kate’s community comes together to support the next generation of Katie leaders and celebrate the incredible impact Katies have on our world. Your gift supports the Katie Fund programs that ensure all Katies thrive:

  • Access and Success (supports student parents and students experiencing a basic needs emergency)

  • Athletics and Co-Curricular Programs

  • Katie Scholarships

  • Multicultural and International Programs and Services

  • Student-Faculty Collaborative Research

  • University’s Greatest Needs

Some generous alums and friends have stepped in to offer challenge funds. Every gift you make on Give to St. Kate’s Day releases unlocks challenge funds dollar for dollar until all funds are released. If you’re a new donor, every dollar you give releases two dollars of challenge funds. And the first 100 donors who give during our Early Bird Challenge (before 8 a.m. on November 13, will unlock $10,000 in challenge funds. All challenges take your gift to the next level by making a bigger IMPACT.
