1923 Giving Society

In 1923, a small group of Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet created Fontbonne College, now Fontbonne University. The founding vision of the college was to provide access to higher education for women. To achieve this dream, it took immense courage, dedication and financial sacrifice. CSJs worldwide responded to a request to give as much as they could so Fontbonne could come to fruition – even long after many of their lifetimes.

The college began with a class of nine students and nine faculty. Nearly 100 years later, Fontbonne University has graduated more than 17,000 alumni and annually enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students taught by 230 professors and instructors.

To celebrate our heritage and advance our future, we introduce the 1923 Giving Society.

Membership in the 1923 Giving Society is open to supporters who commit to giving $19.23 or more per month for a minimum of 12 months.

The 1923 Giving Society provides a sustainable source of funding to the most pressing needs of the university – scholarships, presidential priorities and strategic growth for advancing our mission.

Benefits for this society include:

  • Recognition in the President’s Report Annual Giving Honor Roll of Donors.
  • Subscription to the Fontbonne Magazine.
  • 1923 Society commemorative pin.
