Advancing the creation of a Just and Humane Society

Gifts to Xavier University help students eXpand their horizons, so that they may go on to lead and serve in a global society. For donors, the philanthropic effect can be profoundly fulfilling as it can tremendously impact the course of many deserving young students’ lives.

“I want the students to carry on the tradition of eXcellence. I want to see the Xavier legacy passed on,” said legendary artist, educator and Xavier alum John T. Scott, ’67.

In order to honor the legacy of Mother Katharine Drexel and the mission of Xavier University, we must be purposeful in shaping the future by investing our time and resources in it. Your financial contributions and leadership is vital to shaping the student eXperience, creating new ideas and cutting-edge research, and elevating the eXpansion of our academic program offerings.

Did you know that the Xavier University Main Building, Convent and Library are three late Gothic Revival architecture style buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places?

  • Serena ‘19

    Thank you for helping me reach my goal of studying abroad in London. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to have such an amazing experience while working towards graduating from Xavier University of Louisiana.

  • Tyra ‘18

    Because of my scholarship I can focus strictly on academics and not the financial burden of obtaining an education that is essential to my goal of wanting to touch hearts and save lives.

  • Timothy ‘19

    Without this scholarship I would have to take fewer classes and work more hours to be able to incrementally make progress in my collegiate career. Now I can focus on my studies and handle business in a timely fashion and it also provides me extra time to prepare for the LSAT. I am grateful and humbled by the help I have received from this scholarship.

  • Dominick ‘19

    Thank you so much for funding the Entergy STEM Scholarship and for giving me the opportunity to continue my journey at Xavier University of Louisiana.

“What makes Xavier different is the people, the environment, the fun, the culture of it. And then it’s New Orleans - that’s completely different in and of itself.”
