On Thursday, November 14, 2019, hundreds of parent and alumni volunteers will come together for the 2nd Annual St. Louis U. High Day Phonathon, raising awareness and funds to support the financial aid needs of SLUH. We need your help to make the evening a success - we need lead early gifts; we need volunteers; we need to get the word out!

Last year, we raised over $200,000 for the young men of SLUH, and this year we want to do even better.

To learn more about the evening, please contact John Penilla '99, Director of Annual Giving, at or indicate your interest in volunteering using the form below.
