Men of Excellence Fund

The Men of Excellence Fund was established in 2016 by an anonymous alumni donor who believed all qualified students deserve a St. X education. This need-based scholarship fund aims to provide tuition assistance to families who, otherwise, may not have considered St. X to be within financial reach, even with aid. Since its establishment, 116 need-based scholarships have been awarded, totaling $1.4 million.

The Impact


why i give

My dad had a stroke halfway through my freshman year at St. X. My brother and I couldn’t have continued our education there if it weren’t for the generosity of others. The only requirement we were given was to do our best in school and to keep in mind that we should one day give back to the community. This new fund is a tremendous opportunity for students to experience learning in a community of faith that will offer them the gifts of integrity, hard work and commitment, just as it did for me.” – John McCarthy '86
Knowing how the values and lessons that were instilled in me at St. X have impacted my life in so many ways since my time there, it only seems right to help others in our community receive the same opportunity that I was fortunate enough to get. The best way for me to do that is by supporting the Men of eXcellence fund.” - Zach Kamber '09
