Personal Message

Bringing childcare support to Xavier has been in the works for over 30 years--thank you for helping us take another step forward to realizing this goal! Xavier University is the only local university that provides no childcare resources to its students, staff, and faculty (like subsidies, stipends, preferred status at local care centers, etc.), despite a recent survey suggesting the overwhelming need for this service. Let's change this! Supporting student, faculty and staff access to quality and affordable childcare on or near XU’s campus is not only supportive of Xavier’s mission and identity but also advances our university goal to further equity and diversity in higher ed. We have a goal to get 100 individuals to donate to this campaign during March Gladness. If you can help, even by passing on the link, we'd be most grateful! Thank you for supporting our efforts!

Donations are applied to...

startup and endowment funds earmarked for Childcare initiatives to prioritze service to Xavier students, staff, and faculty.

Why are donations necessary?

For over thirty years, childcare at Xavier has been a necessity for students, faculty, and staff, yet budgetary constraints have prevented the allocation of funding, particularly start-up funding, to a childcare initiative. We have a goal to raise $150,000 for startup and an endowment, which will permit the university to move forward. Through initial projections, we believe the childcare center will sustain itself as a breakeven operation. Nonetheless, initial funding is important for facility preparations and having modest annual endowment income will provide a vital buffer for operations and future investments.
