Create Momentum, Change Lives

Create Momentum, Change Lives

The energy at St. Edward's University is undeniable. Students conduct award-winning research in top-caliber labs for national publication. They serve communities in Austin — and those thousands of miles away in Africa, Costa Rica and India. They connect with peers in Russia and France through emerging technology, such as virtual classrooms. And they learn to lead with confidence and compassion through university initiatives that take them to the Baja Peninsula and the U.S. Capitol.

This energy has ignited a passion for learning for more than 125 years. It continues because of philanthropists like you.

Every philanthropist changes students' lives, like former Associate Professor Cecil Lawson, who established a scholarship in memory of his wife Ayako. Lawson's gift helps students study abroad in Japan. Every gift makes a difference, from paintings donated by alumnus Nicholas Swift '07, MLA '10 to the full-tuition scholarship funded by his father, the late Earl Swift. And every student, from migrant workers to those who attended Holy Cross high schools, feels the energy surging on our campus.

Rest assured, St. Edward's understands that giving is a very personal and selfless act. You can have complete confidence that your contribution will be stewarded as you intended. To that end, the university abides by a Donor Bill of Rights that acknowledges your status as a donor and — to maintain transparency — outlines the relevant information the university routinely shares with donors about the way gifts are used.
