Holiday Campaigns

We are #GUthankful for your support and #GUbelieve in the impact you can have.

We are grateful for our generous donors whose contributions to the Believe. Inspire. Transform. Gannon’s Next Century campaign support the university’s mission to enhance students’ lives with high-quality, affordable education.

You are a part of a powerful network of more than 40,000 alumni that #GUbelieve in the Gannon Family. We are #GUthankful for your engagement and we would like to invite you to participate in our annual holiday campaigns.

These campaigns represent our shared experiences. They allow us to pause and remember what we are thankful for and how we are inspired to believe.

Become a Gannon Campaign Ambassador and share what you are thankful for and what inspires you to believe this holiday season.

How Can You Participate?

1) Find a quiet, well-lit space to record (bonus if you’re wearing your maroon and gold).

2) Record a 15-second vertical video, explaining who or what makes you thankful or inspires you to believe this holiday season.

3) Submit your video on Dropbox.

4) Post your video on your social media – and be sure to tag us @gannonu.

5) Encourage colleagues, family and friends to create a #GUthankful or #GUbelieve video or post, too, and tag @gannonu.
