Ambrose Annual Fund

Your gift strengthens every aspect of a St. Ambrose education

What is the Ambrose Fund?
The Ambrose Fund is the University's annual appeal to all community members for donations that support the entire St. Ambrose experience. Money raised through the Ambrose Fund is spent the same year it is raised, and you may designate your gift to the area that matters most to you. The Ambrose Fund helps provide the 25% of the day to day costs not covered by tuition.

Why does the Ambrose Fund matter?
All contributions to the Ambrose Fund have a positive impact on our students, strengthening the financial aid program, defraying the cost of each student's tuition, underwriting budgets for clubs, providing new equipment and technologies in the classrooms, supporting the operating budget and more. By giving to the Ambrose Fund, you are helping the University meet the needs of its students and faculty, create a dynamic and engaging living environment, and maintain a position of healthy financial standing.

Why is my participation important?
Every gift, no matter what size, makes a difference - and strengthens the culture of giving. Consistent annual support shows confidence in the mission, faculty and administration, and provides the University with regular, dependable revenue.
