The RU experience is unlike any other. It’s a college education that leads to personal and professional success. And it all starts with a promise from one Hawk to another. A promise that is the best gift you can give to a future Hawk: the gift of scholarship.


When you make a promise by giving to RU, you’re helping the Rockhurst tradition live on in others. And it’s an experience that goes beyond the time you spend as a student.

It’s about professional opportunities shared within our alumni network. It’s planning an annual ski trip with fellow alumni, or taking a service trip to a place you never imagined you’d travel. Overall, it’s a community that supports you through the good, the great and the rocky.


For more than 100 years, students have been able to attend Rockhurst because of the generosity of the Hawks who came before them. Help provide the RU experience to future generations by making your promise today.
