Each year, the Villanova Annual Fund provides support that enhances the student experience, helping the University maximize opportunities and direct funds where they are needed most.
The Annual Fund is critical in supporting financial aid and scholarships for students, making a Villanova education more accessible. Gifts to the Annual Fund also help the University provide exceptional academic and extracurricular experiences by supporting faculty and staff, and creating opportunities for new innovations, including student programs and services.
Now, as we aim to reach 30% undergraduate alumni participation this fiscal year—one of our final goals in the Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change—alumni support is more important than ever before. Your contributions on 1842 Day will further enhance the Villanova experience and set a powerful example for today’s students and fellow alumni.
1842 Day is Villanova's first-ever day of giving. This is our opportunity to show pride and gratitude for the impact Villanova has on each of us, in our communities and around the world. Alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends—let's make a difference TOGETHER!
We need your help to reach 1,842 donors in 1,842 minutes, between 12 p.m. on Tuesday, September 19 and 6:42 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20 (EDT). Whether you give $5, $175 or $1,842, your generosity will count toward achieving our goal.
Your contributions will result in more dollars for our students and programs, strengthen our national reputation and bolster the unprecedented success of For the Greater Great®: The Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change.
