There are many ways you can support Saint Mary's

If you have additional questions about methods for giving that are not answered below, please contact us by email at or by calling 507-457-6647.

Giving Options

Spread out your gift over a period of time by making your gift recurring or by scheduling payments on your gift (I.e. monthly, quarterly). When you make your gift recurring, you provide us with your credit card, debit card, or bank account you would like us to debit on the schedule you determine. During the month of Decemeber, we do not take EBT because it does not process in time for year-end. You will receive an official receipt once a year in January for gifts processed in the previous year. You remain in control; you may cancel or alter your gift at any time by calling 507-457-6647, mailing the information in on a pledge form, or Set up a recurring or scheduled gift online today.

Send a check or money order, or hand deliver cash, to: the Office of Advancement at 700 Terrace Heights #21, Winona, MN 55987. Use this pledge form to help ensure your gift is designated and credited accurately.

A wire transfer is an electronic transfer of funds from a financial institution, typically a bank, to the bank account of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. A wire transfer is a very secure way to make a gift to Saint Mary’s and benefits the university immediately upon transfer of the gift. Please contact the Office of Advancement at 507-457-6647 if you wish to make a wire transferred gift.

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota welcomes gifts of appreciated stocks and securities. Many benefactors prefer this type of gift for its simplicity and for its tax advantages. Gifts of stocks and securities can easily be transferred to the Saint Mary’s account. For additional details.

A tribute or memorial gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person’s life, milestones, and accomplishments. When you make a tribute or memorial gift, the university will send a letter to the honoree or family of the deceased honoree notifying them of your thoughtfulness (but not revealing the amount of your gift). Make a tribute or memorial gift.
