To increase our endowment, because of its importance to the University’s success and our ability to provide the first-rate Bucknell educational experience.
To invest new resources in our students, faculty, programs and campus.
To engage alumni, parents and friends in this and future campaigns as donors, volunteers and advocates for Bucknell.
Our campaign goal is $500 million — by far the biggest in University history. The most recent Bucknell campaign, which ended in 2000, raised $188 million.
As of July 2016, we have raised more than $400 million in gifts and pledges.
We expect the campaign to end in 2017.
The campaign targets these five overarching areas:
Within the five overarching areas, we are focusing fundraising around six academic and residential initiatives.
The Creative Campus Initiative
Funding opportunities include interdisciplinary programs in which students hone their skills as creative thinkers and use their ingenuity to address real-world problems; and endowed funds that support innovation and technology across the curriculum. || Explore gifts to Creativity & Innovation
The Global Learning Initiative
Donors can help make global learning more accessible to students of all economic backgrounds by funding international service experiences and providing financial assistance for off-campus study, both domestic and abroad. || Explore gifts to Global Learning & Study Abroad
The Human Health Initiative
Our partnership with Geisinger Health System creates opportunities to help students across the disciplines work on some of the most pressing challenges in healthcare, including healthcare technologies, bioinformatics, biostatistics and neuroscience. || Explore gifts to Undergraduate Research and Academic East
The Management Education Initiative
In July 2017, the School of Management will transition into the College of Management, capitalizing on Bucknell’s ability to bridge the arts & sciences, engineering and management. We seek support for endowed faculty positions and signature programs as well as a new management building. || Explore gifts to the College of Management
The Residential Learning Initiative
At Bucknell, learning occurs everywhere our students work, live and relax. More residential-life funding will strengthen the breadth and depth of our myriad learning opportunities and further prepare students for leadership and success in an increasingly complex world. || Support residential life programming through the Annual Fund
The Sustainability Initiative
Sustainability requires innovative approaches to understanding and responding to some of society’s most complex challenges. Donors can invest in endowed programs and faculty positions to advance one of Bucknell’s most rapidly developing areas. || Explore gifts to Sustainability
