President Gregory's Mission Fund Request

Ensuring the success of our Benedictine University students means not only providing a learning environment that allows them to thrive, but also providing help and support in times of need. The Mission Fund provides emergency relief for students experiencing financial hardship.

Give to the Benedictine University Mission Fund

Our Mission Fund assists students who are working toward earning a degree but encounter hardship during their time here. A family emergency or unexpected expense can derail a student and limit their educational opportunities. The Mission Fund provides them a safety net, ensuring they can continue their education.

When you give to Facilities + Student Life...

Technological advancements and changes in lab facilities often require the upgrading of existing structures or the construction of new ones. Benedictine University has made significant investments in our facilities over the past few years, but we still need to do more.

Planned gifts

Few honors are greater to Benedictine University than inclusion in one’s estate plans. If you have remembered Benedictine with a planned gift or if you would like information about how to do so, you may contact Nicki Anderson, Executive Director of University Development  at [email protected] or (630) 829-6008.

Stock transfer

Giving appreciated stock is tax-wise for some donors. Consult your financial advisor to see if this option may be right for you. For assistance on transferring stock, contact Nicki Anderson, Executive Director of University Development  at [email protected] or (630) 829-6008. We also highly encourage you to alert the University of your impending stock gift so that we may properly acknowledge your contribution. You may contact Nicki about this as well.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution Gifts

For donors who are taking required minimum distributions, a charitable IRA rollover gift may make sense. Contact your financial advisor to see if this option is right for you. You may also reach out to Nicki Anderson, Executive Director of University Development  at [email protected] or (630) 829-6008 for guidance and questions.
