Support SAU

A community advancing education and opportunities

University Advancement

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.

Number of alumni that gave back to SAU on #250BEES2DAY April 24, 2018

For our 5th Day of Giving we had a goal of 250 alumni giving back to St. Ambrose University in 24 hours...and we crushed it! Never underestimate the power of our Bees!

Meeting the needs of a new generation

WRC front

The Wellness and Recreation Center is open! Our alumni and friends stepped up and donated over $18 million for this state-of-the-art facility. We’re almost to the finish line, help us reach our goal.

Take a Look!

Building Our Future

Growing programs, enrollment, and satisfying needs of a new generation of students

Our programs and enrollment are growing – and so are needs of a new generation of students, which is why in 2016 we launched Building Our Future, a $18.5 million fundraising campaign to build a new SAU Wellness and Recreation Center.

The Center is open and filled with students who want to stay fit and healthy; students taking classes and working in human fitness labs; and student athletes who are training to do their best. For the rest of us, the campaign continues.

We're in the home stretch with less than a million raise. This is the largest single capital project in our history and was tackled through the generosity of SAU supporters and donors. We still need your help to reach our $18.5 million goal.

2018 SAU Day of Giving

IT'S AMAZING WHAT BEES CAN DO! The 2018 Day of Giving was all about the numbers and we set a new record for the number of alumni giving back in 24 hours. 412 Bees helped us meet the $25,000 challenge! Thanks to each and everyone of them for making the day so special. And you can be sure that we already have our sight set on 500 for 2019!
