    What does $19.23 mean to you?  

In 1923, a small group of Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet founded 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. 

Inspired by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the 1923 Giving Society program was estblished to maintain, rejuvenate, improve, and expand education at Fontbonne University.

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. Read more about joining this giving society here.
