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.

Join us.

Meeting the needs of a new generation

WRC front

The long awaited Wellness and Recreation Center is open! Our alumni and friends stepped up and has donated over $18 million to build this state-of-the-art facility. We’re almost to the finish line, but need your help to reach our goal.

Take a Look!

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. For the rest of us, the campaign continues.

We're in the home stretch with less than a million raise. This is the largest single capital project in our history and was tackled through the generosity of SAU supporters and donors. We still need your help to reach our $18.5 million goal.

Day of Giving

Ambrosians always go above and beyond. Watch this video about the 2017 Day of Giving, which had a goal of raising $135,000 (which we totally surpassed). We called it 135K2Day!
