The Division of University Advancement is pleased to announce that Arcadia University has met its annual giving target of $750,000 for fiscal year 2022. Thanks to the collective support of alumni, faculty, staff, parents, trustees, and friends, the University raised a total of $751,797 for the University’s unrestricted fund, The Fund for Arcadia.

This achievement is the cumulative effort of every donor who believes in Arcadia, representing all gifts made to The Fund for Arcadia throughout the fiscal year, which begins June 1 and ends on May 31 of each year. Marking a near $30,000 increase in annual support from the previous fiscal year, 2022 also marks a 33 percent rise in annual giving since fiscal year 2020.

The Fund for Arcadia is an inclusive giving vehicle through which all donors can make an impact and to which all donors are welcome. Because every gift matters—no matter its size—all donors have a voice. Collectively, gifts to The Fund for Arcadia each year provide critical unrestricted support, allowing Arcadia the flexibility to respond strategically to issues as they arise and to deploy resources where they will have the most meaning for students. 

In the final 31 days of the fiscal year, through the Let’s Finish #ArcadiaStrong fundraising initiative, the community donated more than $80,000 to The Fund for Arcadia.

“This philanthropic success epitomizes the compound power of our collective support,” said Brigette A. Bryant, vice president for Development and Alumni Engagement. “Arcadia is poised for a bright future; there is so much potential for our community that I am sometimes in awe of what I know we could do. But we need additional support to shift into high gear. We don’t need our current donors to give more, we really just need more donors to give. I am always encouraged by the fact that we are stronger when we give together.”

On June 1, 2022, the start of fiscal year 2023, Arcadia kicked off the new fiscal year with its sights set on delivering on the promise of a generous community. To learn more about giving to Arcadia University or to make your annual gift, visit
