Endowments for Excellence

The University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary thrives because of our generous benefactors who found their own interests and values reflected in Mundelein Seminary’s mission. Today, these connections have been formalized through the Endowments for Excellence program, which allows benefactors to endow an area of the Seminary that holds particular significance for them.

 Endowments for Excellence are designed to enhance the work of a particular center, institute, academic department, or other unit of the University. They may be named at the following levels:

Distinguished: $100,000

Prize: $50,000

Named: $25,000 

Endowments for Excellence will be named at the behest of the donor: for example, the Chester and Margaret Paluch Endowment for Excellence in Preaching.

With the consent of the donor, appropriate recognition will be offered, including the display of the benefactor’s name on the Endowments for Excellence Recognition Wall in the Main Building, annual reports, and invitations to special recognition events.

 Representatives of the Seminary will be happy to discuss with you the ways in which your Endowment for Excellence might benefit an area of particular need at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary.
