St. Joseph Society

A Philanthropic Commitment

It is by no accident that Calumet College of St. Joseph named a donor recognition society after the school’s patron. St. Joseph was an exemplary man who subordinated his own ambitions and desires to respond to God’s will for him and fulfilled his responsibilities toward his family and community.

Established in 2010, the St. Joseph Society is our donor society that recognizes committed individuals whose annual gifts serve to shape the future of Calumet College of St. Joseph and its students. Gifts are used to:

  • Provide scholarships and financial aid for deserving students
  • Further our mission and programs
  • Support CCSJ’s areas of greatest need


of Members

Calumet College of St. Joseph is extremely grateful for the commitment St. Joseph Society members make each and every year. Recognition of members includes:

  • Invitation to the President’s Annual Spring Luncheon
  • Name on CCSJ’s Donor Wall
  • Periodic email announcements of major College news and milestones
  • Invitations to lectures and seminars led by distinguished faculty members
  • Preferential seating at the Annual Trustees’ Scholarship Gala, our signature event
