StFX Giving Day: FAQs

What is student financial aid?

Student financial aid refers to programs and services that students can access in periods of financial difficulty.

At StFX, student financial aid includes things like need-based bursaries, scholarships, and initiatives such as the Student Food Resource Centre, which provides students with non-perishable food items and gift cards for use at local grocery stores.


Will all of my gift go towards student financial aid programs?

Yes. 100% of all funds gifted as part of the Our StFX – Their Legacy campaign will directly support student financial aid programs through StFX’s Xaverian Fund. There are no administration or marketing fees.


I don’t have much money to spare but want to show my support. What should I do?

Any amount counts! No gift is too modest to make an impact, especially when you consider the size of StFX’s broad alumni network. If every alumni gave even just $10 on May 12, we would raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for StFX students. It all adds up!


I want to make a gift. How do I do this?

On May 12, visit and you’ll be taken to our secure online portal where you can make a gift via credit card.

You can also call our toll-free line at 1-888-222-0227 (from 8 am to 4:30 pm Atlantic Standard Time) to make a gift over the phone.
