Alumni and Donors

Imagine a multitude of Briar Cliff graduates — 10,000 nurses, doctors, social workers, executives, teachers, musicians and writers; in our schools, hospitals, businesses and beyond. This is our Briar Cliff network, a group of alumni and friends distinguished by their deep commitment to living the Franciscan values and making a difference in our world. 

Who ignites a student's faith? You do. 

“Every student, employee, and alumnus of Briar Cliff University carries the teachings of this simple, humble, saint from Assisi in their souls, from their actions, words, and general thoughtfulness I can feel the gentle touch of God.”  -Grace McElroy, '14

Who influences the moral compass of the next generation? You do.  

“At Briar Cliff, I grew in ways I would’ve never imagined. I discovered who I am and what my true potential is. At the heart of my BCU experience are the Franciscan values incorporated into our daily lives, teaching what matters most. My success is not measured by what I have or don’t have, but by personal strength and depth of character. No matter where I go or what I do, my journey will bear this definition of success as demonstrated in my Briar Cliff education.” - Jenna Richter, '13

Every gift is an investment that stretches far into the future. You are providing an opportunity for our students, who in turn impact others with their Catholic Franciscan education and values.

Invest in future generations of ethical world changers.
