Planned Giving
Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for St. Andrews University. You can support its mission and all students while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to your alma mater, favorite SAU activity, endowment or academic program.

Please contact Stanton Cadow, Campus Vice-President of Institutional Advancement, who can help familiarize you with the various gift options by exploring and how these gifts types could work for you.

The Elizabeth Fund at St. Andrews
Established in 2010 through the generous $25,000 gift by Joe Junod ’69 and Marilyn Greene, it is named in honor of their mothers, Elizabeth Donaldson Junod and Dr. M. Elizabeth Peck.
“We are both committed to programs assisting people with disabilities,” said Greene. “Our mothers were both great humanitarians, and lovers of animals as well. Since I have a special love for horses, we decided to focus on giving to this program and dedicate these efforts to the memories of our mothers.”

The four main objectives of the fund:

  • To demonstrate support for educational opportunities and training for St. Andrews therapeutic horsemanship faculty and staff
  • To demonstrate support for educational opportunities for St. Andrews students pursuing a career in therapeutic horsemanship
  • To demonstrate support for the horses in the St. Andrews therapeutic horsemanship program
  • To demonstrate support for riders in the St. Andrews “Ride-Like-A-Knight” therapeutic horsemanship program.

Rooney Coffman Science Sustaining Fund
Rooney Coffman ’68 has been a fixture at St. Andrews for over four decades. Every St. Andrews science student has been touched by his unflagging support for science courses, by his concern for his students, by his meticulous care of the science facilities and equipment, his dedication to training his student assistant “elves,” and by his can-do attitude and unfailing good cheer.
In recognition of Rooney’s dedicated service to St. Andrews, the Science Advisory Group proposed, and the University is proud to name the Science Sustaining Fund in his honor.

The Science Sustaining Fund will be used to support the Science Program at St. Andrews by:

  • Supporting Student Research Activities with travel funds and equipment support.
  • Reagent and specialized equipment support.
  • Matching Funds for Grants. Your support of science is vital to St. Andrews.

Your donation will help support current student and faculty research and enrich the science curriculum.

The Equestrian Program
St. Andrews University provides and supports horses for the Hunter Seat Team, the Western Team, the Dressage Team, the Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, the Pre-Vet Program, and the Lesson Program for all disciplines.  Our horses are the heart of our program and a huge part of our students’ success academically and competitively.   Horse Care is one of our top priorities, both for our St. Andrews horses as well as for teaching our students all that is involved in keeping horses healthy, sound, fit, and happy,  From routine vaccinations and Coggins Tests, to veterinary and chiropractic visits, to shoes, to grain and hay  (A LOT OF HAY), to equipment including halters, lead ropes, fly sheets, fly masks, fly spray, winter blankets, boots and polo wraps, saddles, saddle pads, to bits and bridles.  The needs are endless.

Hurricane & Disaster Relief Fund
Hurricane Florence that hit St. Andrews University, Laurinburg and Scotland County in September 2018, caused the worst flooding in decades.  Today, the campus still suffers from damages of the hurricane in significant ways.  Working with FEMA to restore our faculties is a lengthy and timing consuming process that affects the entire campus. We also endured Hurricane Matthew in 2016.  Additional funds to assist with recovering from these disasters is also a need.
