Support SLU's Highest Priorities

All gifts to SLU make a difference for our students, researchers and health care providers, but there are multiple ways to support the University’s highest priorities.


A degree from Saint Louis University opens doors and changes lives, but without financial assistance, SLU’s life-altering education is not possible for many.

Our mission compels us to ensure that SLU is accessible to students of all socio-economic backgrounds. Investing in scholarships brings the benefits of a degree from SLU within reach for the 87 percent of students with financial need.

For those students, every dollar counts. As such, SLU is committed to increasing scholarship funds via Go Further: The Scholarship Matching Program for Saint Louis University. Under this exciting program, the University will match – dollar for dollar – all undergraduate scholarship gifts of $100 or more. Help our students go further with a gift of scholarship.

Annual Funds

Gifts to SLU’s Annual Fund provide a vital source of revenue for essential University operations. Annual Fund gifts go to work immediately to meet the University’s operating needs at any given time, whether that’s emergency student scholarships, updating lab equipment or keeping the lights on in the library. In addition to the University’s general Annual Fund, each school and college at SLU has its own annual fund, whose spending priorities are set by the dean. Ensure SLU’s continued excellence with a gift to any of its annual funds.

Mission-driven Initiatives

True to its Catholic, Jesuit identity, SLU emphasizes educating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. As a result, the University is committed to providing both a rigorous academic environment and a rich campus life that encourages growth through a variety of learning experiences.

Services and programs that incorporate service to others or highlight our Catholic heritage figure prominently in the SLU experience. From Campus Ministry to medical mission trips, these experiences encourage students to live the University’s mission on a daily basis and leave a lasting impact on our graduates.

When you support the University’s mission-driven initiatives, you ensure that our students will continue to reap the benefits of a Jesuit education, which transforms them into tomorrow’s ethical leaders and innovators.
