Donor Recognition

Donors are an essential part of St. Edward's mission to provide the finest educational opportunities for our students while transforming hearts and minds. Because of you, students receive a "whole-person" education - one that challenges and inspires students academically while at the same time allows them to discover who they are, to realize their passions, to become moral and ethical leaders with a global perspective, and to achieve their dreams.

Our Annual Honor Roll of Giving and our Giving Societies allow us the opportunity to recognize and honor our generous benefactors for their support of St. Edward's University and the success of our students. Thank you!
