The Office of University Advancement at Villanova is responsible for a range of activities which provide the framework for building strong support and lasting relationships with a variety of University constituencies, including alumni, parents, friends, and members of the community.


Donations to the Annual Fund make an immediate impact. They ensure that Villanovans have the best possible educational experience—not just in the future, but right now. By funding research, scholarships, programs and initiatives, these gifts fuel Villanova’s drive for academic excellence.

Alumni Relations fosters the life-long connections between alumni and the University. Connect with classmates and friends at Reunion, Homecoming, networking, service and scholarship events. Or join a local alumni chapter to take advantage of the many benefits and services available for Villanova graduates.


Villanova’s Offices of Corporate and Foundation Relations forge strategic, win-win relationships between the University and external partners who believe in—and want to back—the Villanova promise. These alliances provide resources that support capital projects, financial aid and other priorities.

What matters to parents matters to Villanova: that their sons and daughters thrive. Through Parent Engagement and Philanthropy, these caring, experienced adults play an active role in enhancing student opportunities. They provide networking, serve as professional resources and invest in Villanova’s academic mission.

Villanovans are heirs to an extraordinary intellectual tradition. Through planned giving, they become its stewards as well. The Office of Gift and Estate Planning helps donors to structure their gifts in a way that will strengthen Villanova’s legacy while meeting their own charitable, financial and estate planning goals.

In every industry from coast to coast, Villanova alumni succeed and lead. To connect with and serve these men and women, University Advancement operates regional development offices. Regional directors are happy to discuss with alumni ways in which they can help Villanova build on its greatness.

Wildcats fans may never sink three-pointers or hit walk-off homeruns. But by giving to the Villanova Athletic Fund (VAF), these loyal alumni, parents and friends do something better. They support all varsity programs and ensure that exceptional student-athletes enjoy the full Villanova experience.

Whether you are an alumnus, parent of a current student, or simply someone who appreciates the excellent education students receive at Villanova University, we hope you will consider giving to the University or one of its individual colleges and schools.
