Celebrate Your Class with a Special Gift 

Please consider a contribution to one of the following funds in honor of your 50th reunion:
Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship – making a gift to annual scholarships allows the university to continue offering the gift of a Holy Cross education to further generations.   
The Truth and Justice Endowed Scholarship in Honor of Maryhill College – an anonymous donor has endowed the first scholarship to honor Maryhill College. A gift to an endowed scholarship provides for student financial needs in perpetuity. For those of you who remember Maryhill fondly, this is an ideal way to promote its name and legacy to current and future Hilltoppers.
You can find information on ways to make a gift on the university’s website here. Credit card gifts can be made easily and securely here. Checks should be made out to St. Edward’s University and mailed to our secure lockbox at: The St. Edward’s Fund, P.O. Box 2147, San Antonio, TX 78297-9903. If you have questions or would like to discuss the nature of your gift, please contact Anne Westdyke, director of annual leadership giving, at 512.492.3147 or anneew@stedwards.edu.
