National Alumni Association
The future is hard to predict. But one thing we do know is that we will need resources to fuel the mission of Saint Katharine Drexel in years to come. As Xavier University of Louisiana approaches its 100-year anniversary, the National Alumni Association is establishing an endowment fund for scholarships, in Memory of Sr. Monica Loughlin, SBS (11/13/43-2/28/19), who had a long tenure at Xavier as a student, faculty member, and administrator. The goal of $1,000,000 is to be raised by January 2025, the 100th Anniversary of Xavier University of Louisiana.
By creating an endowment fund for scholarships, our legacy as alumni will be invested for the benefit of our alma mater and scholarships for future Xavierites. It is a long-term, permanent fund that provides income each year to support future students attending the university. Up to 5% of the investment earnings will be contributed to General Scholarships to help needy students each year, with all earnings above the 5% being reinvested into the principal or corpus of the endowment.
We invite you to make a gift of a minimum of $5,000 which may be paid over the next five years to facilitate meeting our goal by Xavier’s 100-year anniversary. Here’s how you can participate:
- A one-time gift of a minimum of $5,000
- Annual $1,000 gift over five years
- Ten $500 gifts bi-annually
- Twenty $250 gifts quarterly
- A monthly gift of $83.33 over 60 months
