Thank You

Jim Davis and Terry O'Toole at Campaign Kick-Off Event

Fellow Villanovans,

Together, we have raised more than $759 million in support of For The Greater Great: The Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change. More than 77,500 of us made this happen.


Your generosity has been nothing short of extraordinary, and we are proud to have led this groundswell of support—all with the goal to make Villanova a greater version of itself. A greater Villanova for generations of students, faculty and alumni, and for all the communities we serve.

We are especially grateful to the alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff members who made their first gift to Villanova during this historic campaign—50 percent of all campaign donors!

We also wish to thank the leadership and staff of the Office of University Advancement for their successful stewardship of this transformative undertaking, and for ushering in a new culture of philanthropy at Villanova, one that we know will sustain and support our beloved University for generations to come.

The impact of this campaign is already rippling throughout the University. More students are benefitting from endowed scholarships than ever before. World-renowned faculty are conducting formative research and mentoring students. New programs are challenging the entire University community to think in innovative and exciting ways. And the campus has been physically transformed to reflect the University’s stature and standing.

We asked each of you to take part in the campaign and help the University reach its goals. We knew we could do it, and would do it.

And we did. Together.

Thank you.
