Make a specific gift to a current priority initiative.

Since our 1923 founding by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Fontbonne University has always looked for the best ways to educate our students while looking to the future. While some things never change, such as the need for scholarships, there always will be a need to support programs such as cutting-edge research and award-winning fine arts, among many other aspects of life at a university. Fontbonne frequently engages in fund-raising campaigns to satisfy a specific need, either on the campus, for our students or within our campus community. 

To learn more about current fund-raising campaigns, please contact our Annual Giving team at (314) 889-4712 or annualgiving@fontbonne.edu
