Every year, Hilltoppers around the world - alumni, students, parents, friends, neighbors, faculty, and staff - come together for Love Blue Give Gold, a two-day online fundraising campaign. We support the schools, programs and causes that are important to us, shaped our time on the Hilltop and will help the University achieve its mission for the betterment of our students, alumni, faculty, staff and community.

As a Hilltopper, you are one of our greatest assets, and we need your help! The Love Blue Give Gold campaign kicks off February 21-22, 2017, and we hope you will join us in making this year the most successful Love Blue Give Gold we've ever had!
We can't make this happen without YOU!
What is Love Blue Give Gold and why does it happen every year?
The Love Blue Give Gold social media fundraising campaign promotes participation gifts amongst the St. Edward’s University community. The campaign is used to increase our alumni participation percentage – a statistic used by national ranking organizations to measure alumni satisfaction each year. Charitable gifts also help the university achieve its mission and implement its strategic plan for the betterment of our students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community.
Annual participation matters! Love Blue Give Gold provides the St. Edward’s community with a fun, quick way to make their annual gifts to St. Edward’s University. Be a part of the tradition!
What areas can I support?
The St. Edward’s Fund, sometimes called the university’s ‘area of greatest need,’ provides tuition assistance for deserving students, along with necessary technology and teaching tools for our students and faculty, while helping us maintain both the natural and the built environment on our beautiful Austin campus. It enables us to continue to attract and retain talented and diverse students and strengthens our rankings and reputation.
In addition to supporting the St. Edward’s Fund, donors may designate their gifts to areas that have impacted their time on the Hilltop. When making your gift, select “other” and write in the organization, program or cause you wish to support with your gift.
Does 100% of my gift go to my designated area?
Is there a minimum donation amount?
A minimum gift of $5 is suggested but not required. A Love Blue Give Gold koozie is mailed to those who make a gift of $10 or more during the campaign.
Can a donor make a gift by mail or phone?
Due to the short timeframe of Love Blue Give Gold, only gifts made during Homecoming and Family Weekend, or by phone or online February 21-22 will count toward the campaign goals.
Can a donor make a gift of stock in support of Love Blue Give Gold?
Donors can make a gift of stock in support of their favorite school, program or cause. Learn more here
