We want to express our sincere thank you, to the Benedictine Community, for your wonderful generosity during our 2021 BenU Week of Giving.

We hope you know what a difference you are making in the lives of our students with your support. Whether your gifts were directed to the Mission Fund, our new Belong Scholarship or one of our other scholarships, you make it possible for Benedictine students to receive the financial help they need to continue their education. Your support for our colleges and academic programs demonstrates your faith in our commitment to outstanding quality and continued growth. The support for BenU athletics, helps us provide opportunities for our student athletes that lead to a champion experience both in Lisle and Mesa.

We are happy to share that the 2021 Week of Giving exceeded our expectations and raised more than $155,700. This is fantastic news! If we learned anything in these past 14 months, we know to expect the unexpected and delight in the positive!

George Elliston, an American journalist and poet wrote, "How beautiful a day can be, when kindness touches it!"

Again, thank you! We are truly appreciative of your support this week and always.



Your commitment to Benedictine scholarships will have a lasting impact on today's students and help to ensure that they have the opportunity to pursue their education without undue financial struggle or incurring excessive debt.

Facilities and Student Life

Benedictine University has made significant investments in our facilities over the last few years, but we still need to do more. Advances in technology and lab facilities require updating of existing buildings and new facilities when too costly to modify existing structures

Mission Fund

Mission Fund will assist students who are on their way toward earning a degree but encounter a hardship during their time here. A family emergency or unexpected expense can derail a student and limit their educational opportunity. The Mission Fund will provide a safety net for students and ensure that they can continue with their education.
