Villanova University Advancement

Villanova University Advancement is dedicated to engaging our loyal alumni, friends, parents, corporations, foundations, partners and other benefactors who provide countless opportunities for our students and who believe in the value of a Villanova education.

Whether you’re supporting the Annual Fund, remembering the University in your will or have a particular area or project of interest, we can help you become a part of securing Villanova’s future, continuing our tradition of excellence in the classroom, in our communities and around the world.

In 2019, under the leadership of our President, the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, the University launched its new Strategic Plan, Rooted. Restless., which provides the vision and roadmap for the next 10 years at Villanova. This plan reflects our commitment to remain ROOTED in our Augustinian values and RESTLESS in our desire to ignite change.

It is driven by our shared vision for the University, and will continue to propel us forward to a new level of success, building upon our strengths and enhancing the Villanova experience for our entire community—students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends. With your help, we can become an even GREATER Villanova.
