Are you looking for a meaningful way to make an impact at St. Bonaventure? Consider this: Every student at the University is touched and enriched by the power of your yearly gift to The Bonaventure Fund.
From scholarship support, to academic program enhancement, to faculty development and facilities upgrades, your annual unrestricted gift not only helps propel our students along the most pivotal path of their lives, but also ensures Bona’s financial foundation.
The Bonaventure Fund is the University’s unrestricted annual fund. It provides student aid beyond endowed scholarships and supplies critical support for current needs of the University, allowing St. Bonaventure to remain nimble and able to respond to opportunities.
It is the reason we can offer development programs to our dynamic and diverse faculty members who lead and challenge our students, and it paves the way to sustaining the many programs and initiatives that make the St. Bonaventure University experience unique — such as the Franciscan Health Care Professions program, the Warming House and study abroad programs.
This critical fund makes possible the many reasons why a St. Bonaventure education consistently ranks among the Top Tier of Northern Regional Universities in the respected U.S. News & World Report College Rankings, and why the John Templeton Foundation has called St. Bonaventure one of the nation’s character building colleges.
Since its beginning as the “Alumni Fund” in 1888, The Bonaventure Fund has been the primary vehicle through which our alumni have supported their alma mater. Parents and friends have also found making annual gifts to The Bonaventure Fund to be a meaningful way to demonstrate their belief in the core mission of St. Bonaventure.
We invite you to play a pivotal role in the life of the University through an annual gift to The Bonaventure Fund.
