The Goal: In the summer of 2008, Chaminade University embarked on its most ambitious fundraising effort to date – raising $100 million by December 2017 to bridge our past successes with future initiatives.

The Need:  Capitalizing on the success of the $66 million Transformations campaign, Chaminade University continues to thrive as a place of purpose, promise, and success. The launch of the $100 million Bridges to the Future campaign demonstrates Chaminade’s commitment to addressing the ongoing need for access to quality higher education opportunities, particularly for students who might not otherwise be able afford college.

The Progress: At of the start of the 2014-15 academic year, Chaminade University has raised close to $90 million in the form of private gifts, grants, and public funding, including a recent $10 million Title III grant award from the United States Department of Education.
