The St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center exists to radiate Christ through the Church by building life-giving relationships with the students of Minnesota State University, Mankato, guiding them on their journey of human, spiritual and intellectual formation.
As a result of God’s grace and the generosity of many donors, we are building and furnishing a welcoming and functional facility for the students of Minnesota State University, Mankato. Every cash donation or donation of item(s) through this site will be matched 2:1 by two anonymous benefactors through May 1, 2014. All funds will be used for the Newman Center facility and furnishings.
Please note that pictures shown are representative of each item for the chapel or another area of the new building. As building designs are finalized in the coming months and construction begins, specific items will be purchased using the amount budgeted and shown on this website. The goal is a unified space of the highest quality possible; the amount shown is a moderately average cost for each specific item. Our goal is to provide a transparent and responsible way for donors to make the Newman Center into a reality. We will add additional needs as they arise between now and when bidding ends, May 1, 2014.
May God bless you in your generosity as we work together to make this dream a reality!
Fr. Tim Biren
Director and Chaplain
- We will not be using this website for the transfer of funds. At the end of the auction, invoices for each donation will be sent out from the development office by May 15th. We request that all pledges be paid in full when you receive the invoice, but if bidders are unable to do pay the entire amount at that time, we can create a pledge plan for up to 5 years. Please remember all donations to the Newman Center are 100% tax deductible.
