Pontifex University does not accept donations towards its general operations but does accept donations to fund scholarships for prospective and existing students. Scholarship donations can be made to one or a combination of three funds:
The Chancellor's Fund: To support scholarships for clergy, seminarians, religious and consecrated
The President's Fund: To support scholarships for Catholic educators
The Provost's Fund: To support means-tested tuition assistance for the laity
Scholarship donations that are not designated to one or more fund will be used wherever the need is greatest. For larger donations and bequests it is possible to create named scholarships that will fully or partially support one or more students every academic year. Named scholarships may be created in one or a combination of funds.
