Daemen College’s Drive to 75 campaign has an ambitious goal – $22 million by 2022, the year the college will celebrate its 75th anniversary. Publicly launched in 2017, the Drive to 75 campaign builds on Daemen’s unwavering commitment to improving educational offerings, enhancing campus facilities, and strengthening the college’s endowment.

“We are tremendously grateful for the overwhelming support from all our donors who have generously given to the Drive to 75 campaign, which is vital to our college’s sustaining a high level of excellence,” said Daemen President Gary Olson. “This is the most ambitious fundraising initiative the college has ever undertaken, and each and every gift is crucial to reaching our goal. As we move ahead with this effort, making a commitment to the campaign sends a powerful message about the belief in the value of a Daemen education and will support our students for generations to come.”

The three key priorities for the Drive to 75 campaign, which is being co-chaired by Nancy Haberman Gacioch ’62 and Thomas M. Reynolds ’00, are:

  • Endowed scholarships and professorships to provide sustainable support for the brightest campus minds.
  • Enhanced program funding to elevate the academic success of students and to enrich international experiences, undergraduate research, internship options, and other learning opportunities outside the classroom.
  • Enhanced facilities across campus to provide the highest quality academic, student life, and athletic experiences.

We are at a pivotal moment in the life of our college, a moment that will define our direction and success for the future. “The Drive to 75 campaign will bolster our success as an institution and generate critical funding that will support the hallmarks of the great Daemen experience that we provide.

Whatever form your gift-giving may take, the big picture is priceless: knowing you’re helping to sustain and grow the vitality, viability and vision of Daemen College.

Making An Impact

“Whether you knew it as Rosary Hill or Daemen College, the College still offers students the same world of opportunity that guided us on our way. It was there that I developed the leadership skills I later called on to shape my career with the federal government. Now, I’m doing what I can to give back, so that Daemen College continues to be a living and learning environment for tomorrow’s leaders.” - Kathleen McCarthy '60 Charter Member, The M.
