About The President's Dinner

Since its inception in 1998, the Annual President’s Dinner has been a celebration of what makes St. John’s University unique – the vibrant combination of scholarship and service. For more than 150 years, the University has been “faithful to the mission,” committed to extending the opportunity for a superior academic education to deserving students regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds. Funds raised from the President’s Dinner are used to support scholarship assistance for students who, because of economic burdens, might otherwise be unable to realize their dream of a St. John’s education. In the past 22 years, the President’s Dinner has raised more than $34 million in net revenue which was then distributed as scholarship support for St. John’s students.

Traditionally, the President’s Dinner has taken place as an in-person event during the fall semester. However, due to concerns pertaining to COVID-19, the event has been changed to a virtual event which will take place on Thursday, April 8, 2021. Please join us for what promises to be a special celebration of St. John’s University. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a giftto the President’s Dinner Scholarship Fund to support students and help keep St. John’s strong for the next 150 years!
