About Papa John's

University of Louisville

Since 1996, Papa John’s and John and Annette Schnatter have donated more than $20 million to the University of Louisville, principally in the area of facilities. This includes a $5 million lead gift in 1996 to help fund construction of the university’s football stadium, Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

In 1998, an additional $5 million was committed to help fund construction of Cardinal Park, assisting the university in advancing gender equity and Title IX compliance through the construction of soccer, track and softball facilities.

In 2007, Annette and John Schnatter and Papa John’s pledged an additional $10 million to help fund the expansion of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, which was completed in 2010.
