On October 26, 2013, Villanova launched the comprehensive Campaign: For the Greater Great: the Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change, the most ambitious fundraising Campaign in our history, with a goal of raising $600 million.

We are more than halfway there! Every penny we raise will directly support the Strategic Plan and cement Villanova’s position as a nationally pre-eminent Catholic university.

We have a good story to tell. And so we have taken our story on the road to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Naples and Palm Beach, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, New York and Philadelphia with regional Campaign Launch events. Connecting with alumni and parents in person gave us the opportunity to tell our story.

Impact from the Campaign

The impact from the Campaign is significant! It will do the following:

  • make Villanova a reality for bright, hard-working young people;
  • retain faculty members who are leaders in their field, and who are passionate about educating young minds;
  • build spaces on campus that utilize the best today’s technology has to offer, and inspire students to be the best they can be.

Higher education is at a crossroads and getting more and more expensive. Thus, this Campaign comes at a pivotal time. Now is our moment and we cannot succeed without your partnership and support.

I ask you to continue to support our goals and aspirations because we have so much left to do. And Villanova has always been at its best when our community is working together.
