Our Funding Priorities

Our Foundation supports the educational and religious objectives of St. Paul’s College through fundraising activities and the stewardship of investments derived from gifts received from our donors.

The gifts received support our programs and operations and may be directed to one of three main funds. Our current priority is to establish sustainable funding resources for our College, students, and our academic and outreach programming.
