Academics that inspire. Award-winning student outreach organizations. Athletics victories. Alumni who are succeeding and leading the world over. These are just a few examples of what your gifts to St. Bonaventure have accomplished--all of which prove The Power of a Bonnie!
When we work together, we inspire others and change lives. A.J.’s story (see below) is just one of many that illustrate the collective power of our involvement with the University.

As a young boy, Pittsburgh attorney John R. “Jack” McGinley Jr. would stay at St. Bonaventure University to visit one of his uncles and watch the Pittsburgh Steelers practice during training camp.
That uncle — Fr. Silas (Dan) Rooney, O.F.M. — proved to be a “strong presence” in McGinley’s life and also within the large, tight-knit McGinley/Rooney family where athletics were encouraged and education valued.
Now, as Jack McGinley celebrates 50 years as a Bona alumnus, he and his family and the Rita M. McGinley Foundation of which he is chair have committed $2 million to enhance University Ministries at St. Bonaventure. Learn more about the McGinley gift
A.J. Vitanza, ’15, sums up his academic career at Bona’s in three words: “Adventurous. Encompassing. Humbling.”
This finance/management double major, who is also a prop on the rugby team, member of SIMM and ENACTUS, and participant in our Oxford Program, says what he has learned best at Bona’s is selflessness.
“I want to say thanks for the many opportunities,” he says. “You’ve inspired a lot of us to participate, graduate, and give back.” Learn more about A.J.
At its core, the project will help expose St. Bonaventure students to diverse research opportunities and will offer significant educational experiences. “The whole idea is to help students broaden their view,” said Dr. Zhang. “It will help students understand the importance of math and computer science, and will train them in multiple disciplines.”
Four St. Bonaventure alumni have won newspaper writing awards from the New York State Associated Press Association in the under-15,000 circulation category.
The contest, honoring work from 2013, recognizes excellent writing, presentation, photography and graphics in AP member newspapers.
Winners will be honored May 31 at a luncheon in Saratoga Springs.
