Alumni Giving

Your Gift Matters

We’re committed to keeping the cost of a Saint Joseph’s education affordable for all. And we couldn’t do it without your generosity.

With your help, we can provide essential financial assistance to our students; we can make important investments in our campus facilities; and we can create new and innovative programs like Connections and our pioneering Environmental Science Semester.

      “I believe planned giving is a wonderful way to help the College and students who want a great education but feel more comfortable in a smaller venue. Large colleges are impersonal and teachers don’t even know most of their students. I can honestly say all my teachers knew my name and my needs.”
