What does your annual gift support?
Benedictine University's Annual Giving supports the most immediate needs of the University.  It bridges the gap between the total cost of running the University and revenue earned from tuition.  Unrestricted giving to the Benedictine Fund supports current operations.  By designating your gift to the Benedictine Fund, you are providing the most flexible resources that can immediately be put to use.

Can I decide where I want my gift to go?
Yes! Whether you donate online, by mail or through the phonathon, you can choose where you would like your gift to be designated.  For example, your gift could go to the Benedictine Fund (unrestricted), General Scholarships, a specific scholarship, a college or department or a building improvement fund.

What is Benedictine University's fiscal year?
The University's fiscal year runs from June 1 to May 31.

How will I know that my gift was received?
A gift receipt will be sent by mail for your charitable contribution.
