Thank you to everyone who responded last year to our first-ever partnership with Surly! We had a great time inviting new donors to the sustainer program at St. Thomas.

We are back with a new glass! Here's what you can do to participate in this promotion and support St. Thomas at the same time:

  1. Currently a sustainer? Contact Ariene Willkom at aewillkom@stthomas.edu to increase your monthly contribution by $3 to qualify for the new glass!
  2. Not yet a sustainer? Now is the perfect time to become one! For a minimum gift of $5 per month, you'll help students AND you'll receive a limited-edition St. Thomas/Surly pint glass, featuring the original hand-created design seen above.

Gifts of any size

You may find that it is easier to make a smaller, monthly gift than a once-a-year gift. If that works for you, it also works for those determining scholarship awards and making plans for the coming years.
