The Promise of Niagara
About the campaign

Through you, we see the future of niagara university

Dear Alumni and Friends,

It is with great pleasure and sincere gratitude that I write to inform you that we have fulfilled – and exceeded – the promise that we made to our students and community in 2007!

A $2 million pledge that Niagara University recently received from the John R. Oishei Foundation allows us to surpass the ambitious $80 million goal that was set when we launched “The Promise of Niagara…The next 150 years.” Together, we are completing the single largest fundraising initiative in the 156-year history of the institution. For this, I offer you my personal thanks.

This has been an exciting and transformative period for Niagara University. By exceeding the $80 million mark, we have accomplished our goal of transforming Monteagle Ridge, both physically and programmatically. This work will significantly enhance the Catholic and Vincentian, values-based education that generations of students will receive at Niagara University.

While we are continuing to encourage gifts to this endeavor, we will soon begin planning events to celebrate the successful conclusion of this record-breaking capital campaign. Since your support has allowed us to advance Niagara’s tradition of excellence, I truly hope that you will be able to join us.

Thanks again.
