Support SAU

A community advancing education and opportunities

University Advancement

Maybe it's because of a professor who enhanced your life, or a service trip that gave you a new outlook on the world, or perhaps because of the role St. Ambrose plays in our community.

Our donors give for many reasons, and all are proud supporters of a place where students are enriched by a Catholic education committed to academic excellence, the liberal arts, social justice, and service.

Together, we shape the education and opportunities St. Ambrose offers students today, and for generations to come.

Building Our Future

Growing programs, enrollment, and satisfying needs of a new generation of students

Our programs and enrollment are growing – and so are needs of a new generation of students, which is why in 2016 we launched Building Our Future, a $18.5 million fundraising campaign to build a new SAU Wellness and Recreation Center.

The Center is open and filled with students who want to stay fit and healthy; students taking classes and working in human fitness labs; and student athletes who are training to do their best. This is because our loyal donors.

The Building Our Future campaign was supported by a network of 1,028 donors, with alumni contributing from 38 states. Ambrosians are doing exciting things all across this country, with real world experiences that can inform our programs and students to help build the leaders of tomorrow.
