The minimum level for endowments is $25,000, payable over five years. Connect with Willie Romero, Director of Development, at or 260-399-8033 to explore establishing an Endowed Fund.

Legacy Giving: Securing the Future

Consider a legacy gift, including bequests and estate gifts, to ensure the long-term success of the university and support future generations. The inclusion of a gift to Saint Francis in your will or estate plan is a common form of gift planning. Generous legacy gift contributors receive membership in the prestigious Seraph Society.

A tribute gift is a heartfelt way to commemorate special occasions, honor accomplishments, express sympathy, or memorialize a loved one. Whether inspired by a wedding, anniversary, graduation, or confirmation, your gift is a lasting remembrance and an investment in the future accomplishments of Saint Francis students.
