The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has announced the names of more than 100 U.S. educational institutions that are being recognized with 2019 Educational Fundraising Awards. Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is one of 19 institutions which received “Sustained Excellence Awards” — awards which recognize institutions that have demonstrated consistent fundraising success over a five-year period. Institutions that have been recognized with an overall performance, overall improvement, or award for excellence in three out of the past five years also receive this award designation. Saint Mary’s has been recognized by CASE for the past four years. In 2016 and 2017, the university was recognized for “Overall Improvement.” In 2018, Saint Mary’s received both “Overall Performance” as well as “Sustained Excellence” honors.
