IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

Gifts in Action

"I know continuing financial support is essential to Benedictine University, especially for programs that I value.  The University has a clear mission of service and teaching, with an emphasis on social responsibility and Benedictine values. Benedictine is a good steward of advancing these values and is deserving of support in its mission."

Alumnus Ben Pounds, C84 is setting the stage for future students to succeed through his long-term support of Benedictine University.  Pounds  first started giving back to Benedictine after landing his first full time job with State Farm Insurance over 30 years ago and has been giving back ever since.
