Celebrating the Illuminating Lives Campaign

This summer, the College of Saint Benedict’s Illuminating Lives campaign came to its wildly successful conclusion. Thanks to you and others who believe in the mission of Saint Ben’s, we not only met our audacious $100 million goal, we sprinted well past it to an incredible $112,908,090.

The Momentum is Unstoppable

There is no greater return on investment than an educated, courageous woman, grounded in the liberal arts and Benedictine values, determined to change the world. The Illuminating Lives campaign has been about just that: investing in young women who will make the world a better place.

Through this multi-year campaign — the largest in our college’s history — we sought to illuminate and transform the lives of future students through greater access to improved learning and a fuller Saint Ben’s experience. And with a final total of $112, 908,090 raised, we’ve unlocked possibilities to do just that.

But the need continues. The annual giving program at the College of Saint Benedict never stops driving to build robust scholarship support for the most inclusive group of Bennies possible.

We invite you to join that effort and help!
