Transform a Student’s Life

Before making a gift, many donors ask why support Assumption? Gifts to the University of any amount transform the lives of our students as they provide new and exciting opportunities to enhance their university journey. Your support for Assumption could enable the University to construct new academic facilities, or provide students the opportunity to compete in an NCAA championship, attend a START Retreat, exhibit their artwork, conduct groundbreaking research and much more. Perhaps there is a specific area that you would like to support? If so, please let us know so that you, too, may begin providing new experiences and opportunities for our students.

How you can support Assumption students

  • The students of Assumption are especially thankful for the generous support of so many individuals who make an Assumption education possible.

    Every Gift Matters

    The Assumption Fund impacts every aspect of a student’s Assumption experience. Your gift will support:

    • Scholarships and financial aid
    • Undergraduate research opportunities
    • Equipment and technology
    • Performing and graphic arts
    • Athletic programs

    Your gift will mean a lot to Assumption students – and the University itself. Many corporations, foundations and ranking organizations such as U.S. News and World Report, consider the percentage of alumni who participate in the Annual Fund as a gauge of alumni satisfaction with their alma mater. Your gift shows that you valued your Assumption experience. You are invited to make an online gift on the University’s secure online giving site.

     

  • The President’s Council is a leadership giving society of alumni, parents and friends of the University whose support of and commitment to Assumption University sets an example and inspires others.

    • The welcome sign at the front gate
    • Charlie’s patio
    • The Greyhound sign outside of Laska Gym

    And there are some you haven’t seen:

    • Scholarships for students in need

    Since 1991, seniors have raised more than $160,000 and left Assumption a better place for their contributions. As members of the Senior Class work together to give back to Assumption, everyone benefits.

    This year, the Senior Class will present the University with a scholarship to be awarded to a first-year student who has demonstrated need. Each gift, of any size, brings the Class closer to its goal.

    The Senior Class Gift campaign unites members of the Senior Class as they work together to give back to Assumption. The campaign also helps to promote class leadership. Seniors have been intimately involved with the University community for four years. Participation in this campaign demonstrates their commitment to Assumption and encourages them to become active alumni.
