Office for Advancement

The Benedictine College Office for Advancement is responsible for strengthening the institution through strategic initiatives, programs, events, and campaigns executed by the offices of Advancement Services, Alumni Relations, Annual Giving, Development, and Planned Giving.

Advancement Services

The staff handles the upkeep of constituent records and the recording of donations to the college. They also tell the accomplishments and life stories of its alumni in the class notes section of the Spirit of Giving alumni magazine.

Alumni Relations

This office provides students and alumni the ability to access internships, job opportunities, mentoring, and career counseling through The Raven Walk, an online professional networking platform. The office hosts a variety of events and programs throughout the year to engage alumni with the college. The office is the administrator for the Benet Awards, honoring benefactors and outstanding alumni/alumnae of Benedictine College, St. Benedict’s College, and Mount St. Scholastica College: The Cross of the Order of St. Benedict, the Young Alumni award, the Kansas Monk, and the Offeramus Medal.

Annual Giving

This office works with all constituents of the college to build the annual fund through mail campaigns, e-mails, phonathons, Day of Giving, and the Scholarship Ball. Annual fund gifts support students with scholarships; fuels innovative academic programs; keeps the Benedictine organizations, departments, and athletic teams strong; and continues to grow the faith formation initiatives. The staff also produces four issues annually of the Spirit of Giving alumni magazine.


This office builds and maintains relationships with the constituents to secure funding for scholarships, student research, improve faculty experience, upgrade facilities, expand academic resources, pioneer new programs, and other special needs of the college.

Planned Giving

This office strengthens the college through Legacy Gifts established by the constituent. Your support of Benedictine College reflects your values and the mission to educate students in a community of faith and scholarship. A gift left to Benedictine College in your will or trust is a way to ensure your values live on for future generations.
