Message from Institutional Advancement

Institutional Advancement is more than just the traditional areas of operations. While advancement, alumni relations, development, events, and fundraising are all crucial to helping Daemen fulfill its mission, helping move the university into the future with momentum requires a strategic vision.

Whether it is working with others across the university campus to achieve a goal, interacting and engaging with key stakeholders, or helping support diversity and inclusion efforts, all divisions of the Institutional Advancement team are committed to helping move Daemen forward.

The Drive to 75 Campaign

Daemen University's Drive to 75 campaign, chaired by Nancy Haberman Gacioch ’62 and Thomas M. Reynolds ’00, concluded in September 2022 and raised over $26 million to improve educational offerings, enhance campus facilities, and strengthen the university's endowment.

Drive to 75 Key Priorities

  • 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 university, a moment that will define our direction and success for the future. The Drive to 75 campaign bolstered our success as an institution and generated critical funding that will support the hallmarks of the great Daemen experience that we provide.
