“The Engineering Evolution” – Villanova Magazine, Spring 2015
Gifts to the College of Engineering are fundamental to the health of the University and the College as they reduce dependence on tuition revenues, provide a predictable source of income, enable the development of innovative programs, and attract exceptional students and faculty. Below we present several ways in which you can support Villanova University’s premier, nationally-ranked engineering education.
Endowment gifts create a lasting legacy and may be named for the donors or in honor or memory of someone, such as parents or a cherished professor.
The minimum threshold to endow a fund at Villanova University is $100,000.
