This is a private campaign, started by the family of James W. Keithley, Ph.D., who was a Professor of the Master's Program in Counseling Psychology at SGU until his tragic death in a traffic accident in 2016. Our family does this in loving memory of him, and you will be treated with the utmost respect and dignity. If you would like a refund or to see your funds sent elsewhere, in the event our goal is not met, please let us know your wishes. Otherwise, our plan is outlined below:

If we don't raise enough money to save St. Gregory's University, then money will be donated to the program that Fr. Paul Zahler, O.S.B., Ph.D., started over 50 years ago at St. Gregory's, known as the National Institute for Developmental Delays or NIDD. Their mission is: "To provide “service for all children” on a national basis and to provide community-based, experience-oriented activities, optimizing development for all of the individuals we serve."

Thanks for your support and God bless!
