For Every Saint

A campaign for Saint Martin's Abbey and University

We are calling upon all the Saints to help us continue the legacy of Saint Martin's to support life-long learners and world-changing leaders who think, pray and lead with heart. Through "For Every Saint: The Campaign for Saint Martin’s Abbey and University," we will raise $100 million in critical funding to bring together "people, place and purpose" to serve and expand Saint Martin's educational mission:

$20m for People: Agents of Excellence
$30m for Place: Centers for Student Life and Learning
$50m for Purpose: Access and Opportunity

Hospitality - Community - Respect for Others

From beloved Old Main to the innovative O'Grady Library and Cebula Hall to Baran, Burton, Parsons and Spangler Halls, many Saints feel the sense of welcome and belonging of this place. Saint Martin's also continues to develop state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities as well as ecologically sensitive, aesthetically beautiful living and learning spaces to engage all in our community and bring in community and business leaders.

Stewardship - Justice - Peace

A Saint Martin’s education is academically rigorous, supportive of student success, and informed by its timeless Catholic Benedictine traditions. Expanding our endowment will allow us to award more financial need-based and merit-based scholarships, at higher levels per student. Scholarship support, and academic, athletic, spiritual and leadership development, create the foundation for a transformative Saint Martin’s education.
