Believe. Inspire. Transform: Join Gannon's Next Century Campaign

There are exciting things happening at Gannon University; we're on the move, and now is the time to get involved to make a change.

We believe in the possibilities that will come when you join our campaign – the ones that inspire generations of students, faculty and alumni to pursue bold opportunities that transform them and those in their communities across the world.

Throughout Gannon University’s history, we’ve seized opportunities that elevate the promise of a Gannon education and provide transformational experiences for
our students and the communities they serve.

Believe. Inspire. Transform. Gannon’s Next Century encompasses bold, visionary goals that will lead to incredible outcomes in the areas of academic excellence, student experience, campus enhancements, and the Gannon Fund. Ultimately, our centennial campaign will provide the resources we need to continue fully living out our mission of transforming students’ lives through high-quality, affordable academic experiences.

Achieving forward movement in this mission means finding the individuals who themselves believe in and want to inspire and transform our students’ lives and their own. Every contribution – no matter the size or form – drives us ever closer to achieving our goals and makes you a part of inspiring the next generations of students and leaders.

We invite you to embark on our next century of impact by making your gift today.
