The Campaign for Saint Gertrude

Honoring Our Centennial. Our Sisterhood. Our Future.The Campaign for Saint Gertrude

The Campaign for Saint Gertrude is a comprehensive campaign with five components that will ensure a strong and secure future for both Saint Gertrude and Benedictine with a continued focus on single-sex education.

This comprehensive Campaign will most notably provide a new 50,000 square-foot home for Saint Gertrude with impressive views of the James River that sits only 500 feet from Benedictine. Additionally, the Campaign will grow BSoR's campus to accommodate new athletic fields and complexes to support both the Cadets and Gators. The Campaign will also provide a dedicated performing and fine arts wing and a 3,400 square-foot chapel in the new Saint Gertrude Building. In addition, the Campaign will grow the BSoR endowment for greater student access by increasing scholarships for students at both Benedictine and Saint Gertrude.
