Gifts from Alumni


The enthusiasm, pride, and loyalty of alumni are crucial to any University—especially when coupled with the financial support that extends the benefits of their involvement in their alma mater. The generous gifts of alumni offer a new generation of young men and women the lifetime value of a Franciscan education.

Gifts from Parents & Friends


At Ƶ Francis, an impressive number of parents go far beyond the expected in providing quality education for their sons and daughters. The University enjoys strong community support from friends who value our mission.
