Help Others Celebrate the Holidays with STU Santas

The annual STU Santas campaign is officially underway. STU Santas is a program for St. Thomas University students who are parents with children (16 and under) who will experience financial need during Christmas and the holidays.


Through the support of faculty, staff, and STUdent donations, STU Santas provides financial assistance and gifts to those admirable STUdents who are balancing school, work, parenting, and often other challenges.


Last year, STU Santas supported 47 children in 24 families.


STU Santas has become known as a way for our STU community to demonstrate kindness and generosity. We hope we can count on you to make the holidays brighter for these remarkable STUdents and their families.


Donations will be accepted until December 2nd. One hundred percent of your donation will go to our STU Santas families, and this gift is eligible for a charitable receipt for tax purposes.


Here's how to make a gift:


  • Donate through our online donation page,
  • Donations will be accepted at the Advancement Office, 4th floor, McCain Hall.
  • Jesse Tree gift option: Check out our Christmas Tree outside the Chapel in Holy Cross House. Ornaments are available, indicating gifts requested by STUdent families. Take an ornament, buy the present, and place it, together with the ornament, back under the tree by December 4th.

STU Santas thanks you for your support. Happy Holidays!
