Why give to St. Andrews? Here are a few reasons.
We are a small, independent and non-profit university that depends on the support of alumni and friends to continue to provide scholarships for students. Your gift helps to keep tuition affordable, while providing current students with the same opportunities you experienced at St. Andrews. Your gift helps to close the gap between tuition revenue and the true cost of educating each student.
When you give to St. Andrews, you are helping to attract and retain dedicated and high-caliber faculty and staff for which the University is known. Your gift provides educational resources for our classrooms, and helps to upgrade technology across campus. Your donation may be used toward refurbishing and maintaining the facilities and grounds of our beautiful campus.
Foundations and corporations consider the percentage of alumni who give when St. Andrews applies for grants. When we solicit major donors, they too want to know that our alumni are supporting the University financially. Giving also increases our rankings in national publications.
All levels of giving are welcome. While a gift may seem small in comparison, taken together these gifts have a profound effect on the strength of the University.
Your gift may be matched by your employer, thereby doubling your gift. It will provide you not only with a possible tax benefit, but give you the satisfaction of supporting a place that has played an important role in your life. When you give to the place that means so much to you, you're doing something for yourself as well.
And it's a great feeling.
