How you can make St. Norbert College strong

Members of the SNC community can – and do – express their support in a number of different ways.

Ways to give

Give to the St. Norbert Fund

The St. Norbert Fund is the single most significant source of financial aid for our students, 97 percent of whom depend on it. The St. Norbert Fund allows us to attract worthy students of varied means and diverse backgrounds, who enrich the campus even as they, themselves, are enriched. Because the St. Norbert Fund is exclusively dedicated to providing student aid, every dollar you give also impacts students directly.

If you’re looking for a convenient way to express your support for St. Norbert College on a recurring basis, consider making your gift a monthly one. There are no checks to write or no stamps to buy and there’s no need to make your yearly gift all at once. Opt in to monthly giving via our secure donation form.

You can also provide support during SNC's annual A Day to uKnight. See results from 2022

For more information about the St. Norbert Fund, please contact Emily VanderLinden.

Establish a legacy gift

When you include St. Norbert College in your will or trust, or name the college as a beneficiary of a retirement plan (e.g. an IRA), life insurance policy or other asset, your generosity provides an educational environment for future generations of students that fosters intellectual, spiritual and personal development.

If SNC is already included in your legacy planning, let us know so we can thank you and confirm where you would like to designate your support.

Provide corporate or foundation support

For many in the business community, an investment in St. Norbert College’s present is an investment in their own future. St. Norbert graduates enter the workforce exceptionally well prepared, with a global mindset, carefully honed skills and the ability to react nimbly to change. Supporting the college means supporting new generations of leadership, and building the brain trust that will help shape not only our corner of Wisconsin, but the world.

Many of our community partners also sponsor college events, including arts programming, speakers’ series, college sports and campus-wide events.

To discuss opportunities to partner with the college, contact Amy Kundinger, director of business engagement, at amy.kundinger@snc.edu.

Make a gift as faculty or staff

Faculty and staff are the heart and soul of St. Norbert College. Many of us spend the better part of our adult lives serving the institution and its students. We hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence and our passion fuels its achievement, day in and day out.

For more than a century, these gifts of time and talent have made a profound impact on the students who have called St. Norbert home.

The gift of treasure, too, is something many of us share for the benefit of our students. Through such giving, we join forces with the thousands of alumni, families and friends who enable the college to thrive. Our giving is important in a real sense – donated funds are essential for the college’s financial health – but also in a symbolic sense, because like our other gifts, they make it plain that we value the institution, its mission and its vision.

Faculty and staff giving can take many forms, and can be either unrestricted or dedicated to a particular program or campus cause. (For more information about gift designations or directed giving and programs you can support, contact Emily VanderLinden at emily.vanderlinden@snc.edu.)

  • You can give online, at any time.
