Volunteers gather to celebrate

Your support makes a difference—

By making a contribution, you can be a part of that exciting journey and make an impact that will solidify the innovation of education for our students today and in the future.

Your generosity ensures that Alvernia students have the opportunity to discover and live their purpose.  And your influence doesn't end there. Because when our students discover and live their purpose, they become ethical, well-rounded graduates prepared to transform the world.

If you have not done so, please consider giving a gift of education through a scholarship, the enhancement of an academic program, the Alvernia fund, or a key initiative.

Thank you for your support and interest in Alvernia University and its extraordinary students.
