Annual giving is a vital source of support for Arcadia University, providing critical, unrestricted funding that touches every corner of the campus and shapes the transformative educational experiences generations of students have come to know.
It is the act of making a gift annually—not just the amount you give—that matters. Your participation, regardless of the amount, is a vote of confidence in the value of an Arcadia education and sets an example for others to join in your philanthropic intent. Each and every year, your continued support of Arcadia amplifies your care, pride, and passion for Arcadia and its students.
The Fund for Arcadia
Collectively, gifts to The Fund for Arcadia, the University’s annual fund, provide critical unrestricted support, which allows Arcadia to respond strategically and deploy resources where they will have the greatest impact to cultivate the University’s growth, maximize life-changing opportunities for our students, and bolster that which makes Arcadia special.
Brigette A. Bryant, Vice President for Development and Alumni Engagement, explains how your gift to The Fund for Arcadia benefits Arcadia students.
