Special Appeal Launched to Ensure Success of Campaign

Niagara University is launching a special appeal to raise the necessary funding for the B. Thomas Golisano Center for Integrated Sciences. The Appeal, which started in August and continues until the end of the campaign in December 2011, is a request for additional gifts to the science center and bioinformatics, a top priority in “The Promise of Niagara … The next 150 years” campaign. To ensure that we are successful in our efforts to raise the $33 million necessary to build the new facility, I encourage you not only to continue giving your annual gift, but to make an additional special gift to the science center and bioinformatics through The Appeal.

We are more than three years into an $80 million campaign. We have raised more than $62 million and we have achieved many of our campaign goals. But there is more to do if we are to conclude the campaign successfully next year, and we need your help. Your continued support of the Niagara Fund through annual giving, plus your additional support through a one-time, special gift to The Appeal, is vital to the continued success and growth of Niagara University, and will ensure that we can provide new and improved facilities and academic programs, as well as scholarships and endowments to our students. Your generous gifts to the Niagara Fund and The Appeal will give both current and future students additional opportunities for expanded real-life academic experiences, and advance the educational vision of Niagara for the next 150 years.

You can make your gifts online at www.niagaraalumni.com. Throughout the next 15 months, we will be contacting you via mail, phone calls from students, and personal visits, but you don’t need to wait until then to be a part of this paramount endeavor in Niagara’s history. You are what Niagara is all about and your gifts count.

Thank you for supporting Niagara.
