Jim Schaefer Memorial Fund

Jim Schaefer was a lifelong learner with two degrees from St. Thomas and a law degree from William Mitchel.  At the time of his death in 2015, he had two sons studying at St. Thomas.

Friends of Jim are establishing a University of St. Thomas scholarship in his memory to provide financial assistance to students whose parents die while they are enrolled at the school.

Please consider a gift to the Jim Schaefer Memorial Fund.  Thomson Reuters, where he worked for many years, will match individual gifts up to $20,000.  You can make a gift using the form on this page.

Alumni provide critical resources to St. Thomas, and through their philanthropy, every year they show new students what it looks like to give back and pursue the common good. We gratefully acknowledge alumni who gave financial gifts last fiscal year in support of a St. Thomas education.
