About

We’re kicking off Bona Giving Day with 1858 Minutes of Giving in honor of the year St. Bonaventure University was founded. 

The 1858 Minutes of Giving will begin at 5:02 p.m. on February 14 and run through the end of Bona Giving Day on Thursday, February 15.

We have 1858 minutes to make a difference, and we hope that you will join us!


On Oct. 4, 1858, the Feast of St. Francis, the formal dedication of a new school was held on a tract of land donated by Nicholas Devereux. It was then that the College was named after St. Bonaventure of Bagnoregio, the Patron of Franciscan Studies and Learning.



🏆 The class with the highest participation rate wins, with their total amount raised put toward their Senior Class Gift!
