On February 18, 2021 – as the College celebrated its 75th anniversary year – it also marked another landmark achievement: the successful conclusion of the Always Forward campaign. Over the past seven years donors have contributed in excess of $100 million.
“The tremendous support we witnessed throughout the Always Forward campaign builds on our impressive legacy of philanthropy,” said Le Moyne President Linda LeMura. “From the very beginning, financial support for the College has been strong. In 1946, as the College was just months away from welcoming its first students, a fundraising campaign undertaken by the Diocese of Syracuse raised a staggering $1.5 million in just two weeks, exceeding its goal by 50 percent. In today’s dollars, that equates to more than $20 million. The generosity of donors via our latest campaign is deeply appreciated.”
Throughout the College’s history, no matter the cause or reason, the benevolence of alumni and friends has helped support Le Moyne’s Jesuit mission. This was demonstrated time and again throughout the Always Forward campaign.
