Supporting Alvernia

Your gifts enrich the Alvernia experience

What is the Alvernia experience?

Small classes that instill a strong sense of community. An education rooted in the Franciscan tradition yet tailored to the advances of the 21st century. Resources the envy of universities three times our size. A welcoming campus, minutes from the city, but worlds away.

That’s the Alvernia experience.

Our Mission

The Alvernia Fund engages alumni, parents and friends philanthropically by educating them on the ever-changing needs of our students and inviting them to take an active role in the life of Alvernia University.


Our Vision

The Alvernia Fund provides vital financial assistance to students and to programs dedicated to improving students’ educational experience so they can meet the challenges of the 21st century.

We are grateful to the thousands who nurture our efforts with their generosity each and every year. Your gifts help enrich the lives of our students and thereby enrich their families, their friends, their chosen professions and their communities. The impact is incalculable, yet we see glimpses of it every day.

The Alvernia experience isn’t complete without you. Without you, many students could not attend Alvernia, and your support enables them to stay at Alvernia. Not only does your gift to the Alvernia Fund support scholarships, it goes toward upgrading technology, enhancing classrooms and improving our students’ day-to-day lives.
