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, has an ambitious goal – $22 million by 2022, the year the university 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 university's endowment.
“This is the most ambitious fundraising initiative the university 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.”
- Daemen President Dr. Gary Olson
