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. Your donation entitles you to membership in the Women of Excellence Giving Circle. Membership in the Giving Circle means being part of a collaborative, empowered force that improves the University and enhances the lives of students.
Our Giving Circle members review the grant applications submitted by student groups, clubs, organizations, faculty and staff that propose projects that support the Xavier Mission. Any donation is welcome, but voting starts at a gift of $100.
Each grant can request up to $10,000 for a one year project, $20,000 for a two year project. The funds raised are distributed to the grants that receive the most votes from the Giving Circle members. The more money that is raised, the more grants that can be awarded,
