In the year since Gannon announced its ambitious $100 million comprehensive fundraising campaign in September 2021, Believe. Inspire. Transform. Gannon’s Next Century has garnered remarkable achievements for the university as it approaches its centennial anniversary in 2025.
Founded on four strategic funding priorities, the campaign complements Gannon’s Mission to believe in, inspire and transform our students to have significant impact as global citizens within the communities where they live and serve.
“It is a humbling experience to see the generosity of so many people. Thanks to the continued support, this campaign will have profound impact on students for years to come.”
- Barbara Beuscher
The university is grateful to the alumni, community partners and many benefactors who’ve contributed to the campaign.
“Our progress towards achieving these bold goals is a direct result of the investments the Gannon community is making in the transformation of our students,” said Barbara Beuscher, vice president for University Advancement.
“New donors, volunteers and engaged alumni are giving their time to mentor and share their expertise with our students,” said Beuscher. “It is a humbling experience to see the generosity of so many people. Thanks to the continued support, this campaign will have profound impact on students for years to come.”
Several examples of gifts that supported the campaign goals and invested in the transformation of our students, making notable contributions including:
Investments toward the Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge to support regional workforce development and pave the way for more students to pursue STEM-related fields.
Scholarships and endowments are being created to offer affordable, high-quality educational experiences that are affordable and accessible for all.
Meaningful partnerships were formed, including a 10-year leadership investment with Highmark to rename the home for several of Gannon’s athletic teams, becoming the Highmark Events Center.
The university looks forward to continuing the momentum of these notable contributions. As we enter the second year of the campaign we will emphasize focus on enhancing the student experience through scholarships and endowments.
