The President’s Circle

Blog_600x300_Presidents Circle

The President’s Circle is an esteemed group of devoted benefactors whose philanthropy works to bolster the University of St. Thomas and its students. Membership begins with a cumulative contribution of $1,000 or more annually to support the University’s greatest immediate needs, chief of which is providing scholarships for deserving students with limited financial means. Gifts made to the University at The President’s Circle level are paramount in our ability to intentionally cultivate a campus that is as diverse and vibrant as the tapestry of the City of Houston itself.

This community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends is bound by a shared promise to support our students’ success. Their unrestricted financial gifts enable UST to meet the needs of students and develop them into leaders instilled with goodness, discipline, knowledge and a strong sense of community.

Join The President’s Circle

Cumulative gifts made between now and June 30, 2023, make you eligible for President’s Circle membership. Consider setting up a recurring gift today by visiting stthom.edu/PresidentsCircle
