Gifts from Alumni

The enthusiasm, pride, and loyalty of alumni are crucial to any University—especially when coupled with the financial support that extends the benefits of their involvement in their alma mater. The generous gifts of alumni offer a new generation of young men and women the lifetime value of a Franciscan education.

Gifts from Parents & Friends

At Saint Francis, an impressive number of parents go far beyond the expected in providing quality education for their sons and daughters. The University enjoys strong community support from friends who value our mission.

Gifts of Remembrance

Honorary and Memorial Gifts.  These gifts honor two groups of people: the living, whom others wish to honor, and the deceased, whom friends and families seek to memorialize.  Such gifts serve as a tribute of the honoree and perpetuate his or her impact in a tangible way.
