The Office of University Development is committed to the continued advancement of Benedictine University. We challenge our alumni and donors to support the University in order to transform our future and ensure the growth and development of the institution and our students.
Benny is the #1 advocate at Benedictine for student giving. He also supports alumni, faculty, staff and other friends who are willing to give in a small way to make a big difference together.
Keep Benny in a prominent place and remember to feed him your spare change. When your bank is full, simply donate that change back to the University at one of our Bank Days.
You decide where your donation goes, so help share a scholarship, build a bench, plant a tree – there are so many ways to give back and leave your mark. The more you feed Benny, the more BenU can do!
Thank you to the fantastic members of the Benedictine Community who helped bring in $343.99 so far this year, supporting a variety of areas, including class gifts, athletics, scholarships and the Benedictine Fund!
Keep up the momentum by attending this month's bank day, Tuesday, February 14, 11am-1:30pm, in the Kindlon Atrium. In honor of Valentine's Day, Benny is providing "Benny-tines" to show your fellow Eagles you care! Simply bring your piggy bank or make a donation at the table, and you'll receive two Benny-tines treats - one for you and one to share. RSVP to the event on Benny's Facebook page.
a little Change…a BIG Impact
Those of us at Benedictine have at some point or another been on a college student budget. We don't expect you to make a $10,000 gift to the University, but we do want you to know that any gift, no matter how large or small, is appreciated and extremely important to the University.
Please contact Jessica Stillo, Associate Director for Stewardship, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a Benny to start saving!
