Support SAU

A community advancing education and opportunities

University Advancement


At St. Ambrose, each student is encouraged and empowered to explore far and wide through academics, art, social activities and service opportunities. Gifts to the Ambrose Annual Fund support a well balanced St. Ambrose education and experience.

Maybe it's because of a professor who enhanced your life, or a service trip that gave you a new outlook on the world, or perhaps because of the role St. Ambrose plays in our community. Our donors give for many reasons, and all are proud supporters of a place where students are enriched by a Catholic education committed to academic excellence, the liberal arts, social justice, and service.

Together, we shape the education and opportunities St. Ambrose offers students today, and for generations to come. Join us on their journey.

BEEx12 allows continued annual support of St. Ambrose at the convenience of our donors.

Why become a monthly donor?
• Monthly, ongoing gifts combine the ease of installments with the convenience of automatic renewal.
• Support what's important to you, on a schedule that fits your budget and fits your lifestyle. Becoming a monthly donor makes giving easier and convenient. You can stop or adjust your ongoing gift at any time.
• Once a monthly gift is set up, it will automatically repeat each month, providing a convenient way to spread your contribution over time. You will create a larger impact through your giving by making manageable payments in an amount that's right for you.
• Your monthly gift helps build a predictable source of funding for SAU. Reliable donor support leads to significant advances in scholarships, academic programs, research, technology enhancements, and campus improvements.
• Monthly giving also saves administrative costs. It is a sustainable giving option because it saves paper, postage, and eliminates renewal letters and reminders in your inbox, voicemail, and mailbox.
• As an alumnus or friend, an ongoing gift ensures that no matter how much else is changing your life, your commitment to SAU always remains strong.
