Saint Peter’s Goes “Full Spring Ahead!”

After a long and arduous winter, Saint Peter’s University started off the season with “Full Spring Ahead!” Representatives from the Office of Advancement and External Affairs diligently dialed phone numbers to acquire gifts for a campaign designed to gain 500 donors in 50 hours – from March 20-March 22. During these three days, loyal supporters of the University truly answered the call as the event exceeded original targets, with a final count of 525 donors and more than $115,425 raised for the University.

“This campaign was completely exhilarating,” said Manager of Annual Giving Donna Lindsey. “I am overjoyed that so many people supported the University in this historic campaign. It was a team effort, and the generosity we have all seen from this outpouring of support is inspiring.”

In addition to donors giving generously over the phone, gifts were also received from Saint Peter’s University students, staff and faculty. Postcards and emails were sent to potential donors before the event announcing that gifts of any size can help provide scholarships to deserving students and upgraded software for computer labs throughout campus, as well as support other areas of need. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Despite the success of this remarkable campaign, the University still needs your help. By making a tax deductible gift before June 30, 2014 – the end of the University’s fiscal year – you can ensure that students will continue to have access to the quality, memorable and character building experiences provided by a Jesuit education.

To make a difference in the lives of the future leaders of tomorrow at Saint Peter’s, make your contribution online at www.saintpeters.edu/giving prior to midnight on June 30, or send your gift by mail with a check dated on or before June 30 and the envelope postmarked by June 30.
