The Importance of the Newman Fund
Your gift to the Newman Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) helps to create and to preserve the “Newman experience” in many ways including:
Funding Student Scholarships
Each year Newman University provides institutional scholarships based on merit and need. 99% of Newman full-time undergraduate students directly benefit from this support. In the 2014-15 academic year alone, students received an average of $14,664 in institutional financial support. That’s over $13.8 MILLION to make a quality Newman education affordable.
Supporting Student Programs and Services
Annual giving to the Newman Fund creates the opportunity for Newman students to choose from over 75 undergraduate and graduate programs and a variety of services provided by the university.
Every Gift Counts!
No matter the size of your gift, ALL support from alumni and friends has a significant impact on the educational experience for Newman students. Each year, EVERY GIFT, regardless of amount, makes a difference.
Here's one very important reason why:
When joined with others, your gift will improve our alumni participation rate. This participation rate is very important to Foundations and other outside donors who want to know if those who know us best give to support our success. Your gift, regardless of size, will provide a tangible sign to others that Newman is worthy of their support.
Give to Newman
"To give away money is an easy matter, and in any person's (man's) power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large, and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every person's (man's) power nor is it an easy matter."
