Celebrate all that makes Villanova great each September on 1842 Day, our annual day of giving.
Sixth Annual 1842 Day Results
On September 20, 2022, Villanova celebrated our sixth 1842 Day. More than 11,000 gifts were made to 300+ areas across campus, totaling a remarkable $10.2 million in support. 1842 Day giving sustains the people, places and programs that make Villanova truly special.
1842 Day Ambassadors
1842 Day Ambassadors reach out to friends, family and fellow Villanovans to raise awareness, build excitement and inspire others to make a gift on 1842 Day. If you are interested in volunteering for our next 1842 Day, please email Nicole Duhamel.
Set it and forget it! Recurring gifts allow you to easily support Villanova year-round.
To set up a recurring gift, simply choose an area of support and select the “recurring gift” option. You can opt for a monthly or yearly contribution, which provides sustaining support to the University and makes a big impact over time! Plus, you can modify your recurring gift at any time.
Recurring contributions are also a great way to sustain your membership in Villanova’s Loyalty Society, which recognizes donors who give for three or more consecutive years.
Your Reunion is an opportunity to come back and give back in a way that is meaningful to you.
Reunion giving is a year-long fundraising effort leading up to your Reunion celebration. If you are celebrating Reunion in 2023, you can participate by making a gift—of any amount and to the area of your choice—between June 1, 2022, and May 31, 2023.
Your gift will be counted in your class giving total, which is measured in two ways: total dollars contributed and class participation rate. To learn more, please email us.
Villanova’s Student Philanthropy Associates build relationships to raise funds for the University.
Every year, our students speak and text with thousands of alumni, parents and friends to hear about their time on campus, share University news and raise funds to improve the Villanova experience for current and future students.
