We encourage and invite you to join with others in making the kind of investment that will last forever - an investment in Saint Joseph's College.

Scholarship Donor
Susan Vontell makes a financial donation that encourages nursing students to enter the College. Her endowed scholarship for first-generation Maine nursing students is dedicated to her parents. “My husband and I are at a stage in life when it’s time to give back. We look seriously at our charitable giving to organizations that have meaning for us.”

Planned Giving

“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.”

Rosanne Botto '78, '91, Planned Giving Donor

Her satisfaction with the online MBA program, and its impact on her career, inspired Janet Maguire to make a gift to the College this year, “I wanted to give back to the community, in whatever small way I could.”

Janet Mcguire '15, Online MBA Grad/Donor
