Impact of Your Gift

Impact of Your Gift

When you support Alverno students, you strengthen our community. Our results stay close to home, with approximately 80% of our 8,000 graduates residing and working in Wisconsin.

Your gift helps create local doctors, nurses, lawyers, judges, scientists, artists, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, teachers, school administrators and more.

Your gift provides our students the opportunity to complete two or more internships or field placements during their educational career, and it makes a difference – within six months of graduation, 84% of Alverno students are employed in a field related to their major.

Your gift lets us focus on the individual, her background and goals, so we can help thousands of women reach for something far more valuable than their careers. An Alverno education prepares students for the ultimate test – the rest of their lives.

 The financial need of Alverno students, by the numbers:

  • 55 – percentage of our students who receive the Federal Pell Grant, an award distributed to the highest financial need students. In 2009-10, the maximum Pell Grant was $5,350, only a portion of the cost of tuition.
  • 14,649 – dollars; the average amount of total need-based financial aid our students receive. Your gift can help fill the gaps in tuition, making a significant difference in the lives of our students.
  • 34,142 – dollars; the average loan debt our undergraduate students leave with after graduation. Your loyal support is even more critical now than in previous years, due to today’s economy.
