Why Give?

Giving to St. Olaf reflects a shared belief in the work of the college. More importantly, it is an investment in the lives of St. Olaf students.

Your gift to the college:

  • Provides access for promising students who depend on financial aid to make college possible
  • Allows more students to take advantage of high-impact educational experiences, such as interdisciplinary learning communities, collaborative research, study abroad, and internships
  • Helps students create a plan for life after St. Olaf by expanding programming for vocational discernment and career building
  • Allows St. Olaf to prosper and adapt to a dynamic and changing world

A gift to the college helps create these opportunities and more. Whether it’s endowing scholarships for students, establishing faculty chairs that recognize top-notch teachers, promoting high-impact educational practices across the curriculum, or providing general support through the St. Olaf Fund and endowment, your gift opens doors and impacts lives.

With your support, St. Olaf can continue to inspire and prepare the next generation of Oles to make a meaningful difference in the world. Every gift and every donor matters. Support the college by making a gift today.
