Reunion Giving

Come Home, Give Back

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. The campus looks a bit different but our iconic gates still stand, and the St. Kate’s mission remains planted firmly on its foundation: women, Catholic, liberal arts.

This year we are excited to celebrate alumni graduating in 1942, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, 2012, and 2017 during Reunion throughout June 10-11, 2022.

If the past couple of years have taught us anything, it is that strong leaders can make a positive difference in many ways. Please help us continue the St. Kate’s legacy of educating women to lead and influence.

As you celebrate your Reunion this year, we ask you to consider honoring the St. Catherine tradition — your tradition — by giving a gift of any size to help create opportunities for current and future Katies and help your class reach its Reunion class goal!

Participation Matters

It takes only one Katie to make an impact — imagine what an entire community of Katies can do! Your Reunion gift, no matter the amount, can be a life-changer for students and will help enable them to enroll at St. Kate's and continue through graduation.

Let’s come together to support Katies. Your gift of any size meaningful to you not only will support Katies but also will help your class reach its class giving goal, as well as inspire your classmates to participate. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of today's Katies!

All Katie Fund gifts given by Reunion celebrants will count toward class gifts and also will count toward LEAD & INFLUENCE: The Campaign for the Next Level of Excellence.. Thank you for helping this year’s Reunion celebration be a great success!

To further your impact, we are excited to introduce this year's Reunion Challenge Fund. Between now and May 31, all Katie Fund gifts will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $120,000! A special thank you to our generous Challenge Fund donors who have made this possible:
