Reunion Giving

Why Your Support Matters

Remember when you first stepped through the gates of St. Kate’s? It was a special place that would shape your future. You gained skills, knowledge and confidence under the care of the campus community. You were pushed to succeed by professors. You made great friends, enjoyed student life, and most importantly, earned a degree.

Today’s Katies are on a similar path. Campus looks a bit different, but those iconic gates still stand, and St. Kate’s mission remains grounded in the same things: women, Catholic, liberal arts.

As you celebrate your Reunion in 2019, we ask you to honor the St. Kate’s tradition — your tradition — with a gift.

Continue the legacy of educating women to lead and influence. Strong women leaders are needed now more than ever. 

Participation matters — lead by example.

St. Kate's alumnae/i graduating in 1944, 1949, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2009 will return to campus to celebrate Reunion on June 21–22, 2019.

Any gifts to the University made between June 1, 2018 and Reunion 2019 count toward Reunion class totals!
