The Katie Fund

Giving to the Katie Fund supports every student, every year.


Your gift to the Katie Fund goes immediately where it is needed most — to current students in all of the University's schools and colleges. Katie Fund gifts ensure that each year St. Catherine University is able to provide support for: Access and Success, Katie Scholarships, Multicultural and International Programs and Services, Student Athletics and Co-curricular programs, Student/Faculty Collaborative Research and the University's greatest needs.

Your gift makes an immediate and profound difference at St. Catherine University. Katie Fund gifts reach out to all corners of the University, helping shape every student's experience. Each year, your gift ensures that current St. Kate's students have all the tools and support they need to leave the University prepared to lead and influence.

Organizations that rank U.S. colleges and universities look at alumnae/i participation as an indicator of the quality of an institution. In addition, many foundations and corporations look at alumnae/i participation as a basis to determine whether the University is a good investment. Your gift, when combined with the thousands of other gifts from alumnae/i and friends, adds up to big support for St. Kate's students. Your gift makes a statement that St. Catherine University is an institution worth investing in.

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to remember someone who has had a special connection to the University. It is a great way to remember your favorite faculty member, a mentor, a roommate or a friend. When you make your gift, by check or credit card, indicate whom the gift honors and where you would like us to mail a note about the tribute gift.
