This evening, Gannon University launched one of its most ambitious fundraising campaigns in its nearly 100 year history.
The $100 million comprehensive campaign is called “Believe, Inspire, Transform. Gannon’s Next Century.”
The goal is to enrich the student experience, foster academic excellence, enhance the campus landscape and leverage the Gannon fund.
Officials say the campaign has been quietly gaining momentum and the school has already raised $60 million.
“Gannon has had a successful first 100 years and we are on the move. There is lots of momentum and we are really excited what the next 100 years will bring for us and by donors investing in this campaign will truly change the trajectory of our next 100 years.” said Barbara Beuscher, Vice President of University Advancement at Gannon University.
This fall, the university has its highest enrollment ever, welcoming more than 4,700 students from every state and 71 countries.
