This $300 million campaign will ensure that St. John’s can continue to offer a rigorous liberal arts education at a price that remains defensible.
Of our $300 million campaign goal, $225 million is committed to academic and student support, an area that includes student scholarships, internships and fellowships, health and wellness efforts, and career services, as well as endowed tutorships and other initiatives that directly support faculty. $50 million is aimed at maintaining the financial stability of the college. The remaining $25 million will fund essential campus improvements that shrink the college’s carbon footprint and build community—without adding new buildings.
Freeing Minds will not only address the current priorities of the college but will also create a stronger base of support for the future. One-third of campaign gifts will go toward immediate needs while two-thirds will be invested through the St. John’s Endowment. Adding $200 million to the endowment will more than double its size, further reducing St. John’s dependence on tuition revenue.
