Make a Gift
Every year, men and women from across the country and around the world generously support the work of Franciscan University, enabling us to provide an authentically Catholic education to some of the best, brightest, and most faithful young people in the country.
We're particularly blessed, however, by the members of the Franciscan University President's Circle - a distinguished group of University alumni, parents, and friends who support Father Sean Sheridan, TOR, in advancing his vision for Franciscan University. Collectively, members will provide Father Sean with well over $500,000 in funds each year to help him realize some of the University's most important priorities.
Your unrestricted gift of $10,000 or more, every year, will able Father Sean to address critical and immediate University needs, helping him advance Franciscan University's mission of forming the students who will transform the world.
How you Can Help
When you give to the President's Circle, you support strategic needs in the area of Student Financial Aid, where crucial, need- and merit-based grants help those who would not otherwise be able to attend Franciscan University and lessen what often can be an otherwise overwhelming loan burden.
Benefits of Membership
We invite you to join this network of friends who believe in the mission of Franciscan University. This network helps make our mission possible. In addition to the significant impact you will have through the University on the Church and the world, we offer these opportunities to members:
- An invitation to an annual retreat held on campus;
- An invitation to the President's Circle annual meeting with Father Sean to give feedback and learn about current Franciscan University events as well as future plans;
- Prayers for your specific intentions.

As we move forward in this next chapter of the history of Franciscan University, I believe that there is much more for us to do. We have only seen a glimpse of what God has planned for Franciscan University. And so I extend to you an invitation to join me in serving this vital mission."
