SLU's Greatest Need
Where we need your support:

Uncertain about which program or organization to support? Make a gift to one of Saint Louis University’s areas of greatest need.


Accelerating Access Scholarship Fund
Sometimes SLU students and their families experience financial hardships — and with these challenges comes a drastically increased need for financial aid. Gifts to the Accelerating Access Scholarship Fund will help us meet the needs of these students during difficult times and provide aid to students immediately. 

Goal: $5,000

Fund: Accelerating Access Scholarship Fund (29228)


Billikens for All

In 2020, the University established a central fund to support SLU's local outreach efforts. This fund is administered by the Department of Campus Ministry and allows University programs and service organizations the opportunity to request additional resources to serve those most in need within our region. Your gift to the Billikens for All fund will allow groups such as Labre, Campus Kitchen and APO (just to name a few!) to extend their reach and provide additional community support.

Goal: $2,500

Fund: Billikens for All (11475)


Jesuit Center

Saint Louis University and the Society of Jesus are constructing a new Jesuit Center on the University’s north campus, with the aim of better integrating Jesuits into the campus community and University life. The new center will replace Jesuit Hall with a modern and more appropriate home. It is envisioned as an apostolic center, a community where frequent guests are welcome and where the Jesuits themselves may readily pray together, dine together and encourage and support one another. The center’s public spaces have been designed to accommodate receptions, dinners and other social events. The community chapel will be available for student Masses as well as other special liturgies, prayer services, lectures and concerts appropriate to a chapel.

Goal: $5,000

Fund: Jesuit Center (11490)


SLU Libraries

By supporting various library funds each year, our generous benefactors enable the University to continuously enhance and enrich its internationally recognized collections, providing a vital academic resource for students and a valued cultural resource for the region. The support of Library Associates members is crucial to the libraries’ continued excellence.

Goal: $2,500

Student Emergency Relief Fund

Student Mental Health
