So many faithful people in our community support Saint Martin’s, and we are thankful for every one of you! Regardless of the amount of your gift, you help make a profound and immediate impact.
You make it possible
Donors make it possible for students to receive scholarships, help build new buildings, sponsor events and launch new programs. Saint Martin's supporters include alumni, parents, friends, members of the St. Martin's Abbey, members of the Saint Martin’s Board of Trustees, University leaders, faculty and staff, and foundations and corporations.
Join with other like-minded individuals and enjoy the benefits of giving through one of Saint Martin’s giving societies or annual gift clubs.
Loyal donors are the cornerstone of Saint Martin’s. In recognition of this important commitment, we honor our alumni, parents and friends who have shown a financial commitment to the University every year. Gifts of any amount to any areas of the University are counted towards our loyalty clubs. Consecutive years of giving are counted by fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30.
|Group level||Years of consecutive giving|
|Benedict's Club||2-4 years of consecutive giving|
|President's Club||5-19 years of consecutive giving|
|Chancellor's Club||20 or more years of consecutive giving|

The Legacy Circle is a sub-group of the Martin of Tours Society. It recognizes individuals who have planned future gifts for the University by creating a gift-by-will (bequest), naming the University as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or creating a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust (both of which give lifetime income to donors). Legacy Circle members are invited to Martin of Tours Society events and are recognized in other ways for their intent to leave a legacy of support for the University.
