Pride, Passion, Promise Campaign

Pride, Passion, Promise Campaign

129,182,555 reasons to say 'Thank you!'

In May 2011, the University successfully completed the Pride, Passion, Promise capital campaign, exceeding its $125 million goal.  The campaign is the largest in Scranton's history and is 3.5 times larger than the previous campaign.

The campaign was announced in 2008 with a goal to raise $100 million. The response from the University community was extraordinary. Moved by the spirit of the magis and humbled by an outpouring of support, the goal was raised to $125 million in early 2010. Thanks to 27,928 donors, we successfully closed the campaign in May at $129,182,555. 

The campaign provided funding for essential facilities that would round out the beauty and functionality of campus. The synergy of this campaign allowed us to build the DeNaples Center, Dionne Campus Green, Condron Hall, Loyola Science Center and the apartment and fitness complex on Mulberry Street.

The campaign also helped the us invest in our students, faculty and programs through endowment, which keeps us competitive and enables us to attract the best students.
