Dear Fellow Bucknellians, 

Though every one of us contributes to the future of this University and what it will become, it is a rare occasion that I have the privilege of sharing with you news of a transformational moment in Bucknell's history. Today is one of those occasions. 

I am delighted to share with you the news that the University has received a $20 million pledge — the largest single gift in our 170-year history. Please find the details of this extraordinary commitment here. This is in the true sense of the word a "special" day for Bucknell. 

My best,

John
