Begin with Bonaventure
What sets St. Bonaventure University apart is our commitment to mentoring students within learning environments that engage both the mind and the spirit. At St. Bonaventure, we are concerned with investing human life with a sense of meaning and purpose. Our students know the world is their community and reach out accordingly, and our graduates are living extraordinary lives in service to others -- on local, national and international levels.
This year, Begin with Bonaventure. We invite you to play a pivotal role in the life of the University through an annual gift to The Bonaventure Fund. Your gift today helps shape tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.

Donate to SBU

These costs include, but are not limited to, travel costs, equipment, and player/coaching clinics.
