Villanova Annual Fund

Annual Fund

Your Participation Matters! Help us Reach our 30% Goal.

The number of undergraduate alumni who make annual gifts—the “participation rate”—is a widely used measure of alumni satisfaction and an important factor in national rankings. Despite decreasing alumni participation rates nationwide, Villanova continues to increase its rate year over year. From 17% in fiscal year 2009 to a new record of 28% in fiscal year 2017, more alumni are giving back than ever before.

The Villanova Campaign to Ignite Change has reached historic new heights and we have one goal left before the Campaign ends on May 31: 30% undergraduate alumni participation.

Whether it’s been a year since your last gift or you have yet to make your first, now is the time.

Every gift counts. Support the area that means the most to you.

Our Thanks to You.

All donors who make a gift in fiscal year 2018 (June 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018) will receive an exclusive car magnet commemorating Villanova’s 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship. Look for this special thank you in June!
