Corporate, Foundation, and Organization Donors

Many businesses and philanthropic organizations support the university’s educational mission through annual gifts, gifts to capital and endowed purposes, and gifts-in-kind such as books, equipment, and other educational materials. In addition, many corporations match gifts made to St Thomas by their employees. We are grateful to the following organizations that helped to provide a St. Thomas education to students last year.

* – Deceased | All gifts made during fiscal year 2017 (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017)
