Women of Excellence

Women of Excellence 

Make a Gift

The Women of Excellence was created to honor, extend and advance the legacy of Xavier's and Edgecliff's extraordinary women graduates, as well as provide opportunities for women to grow as organizational and philanthropic leaders for the University.


The Giving Circle

Xavier's Women of Excellence formed a giving circle to allow women to collectively support Xavier and encourage the development of women as philanthropic leaders. Giving circle members are alums, parents and friends who recognize that women as donors have the capability of making a tremendous impact on the University, its students, faculty and staff.

Funds from the giving circle are distributed through a grant application process to projects and programs proposed by faculty, staff and student groups of Xavier. The annual distribution of funds to selected campus programs is determined through a voting process by Giving Circle members.

Mentoring

The Women of Excellence mentoring program is a partnership with the University's Career Development Center. We invite you to share your experience and practical real-world advice with our students by becoming a mentor. As a mentor, you become a role model who can make a difference in the lives and career choices of our students. Not only is this a fulfilling and rewarding opportunity for both you and students, but it's also a way for you to stay connected to the University and the Jesuit legacy of being a woman for others.
