Neumann University was built upon the foundation of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. In the beginning, Sisters raised the money to build the college by soliciting funds from the parishes, held bazaars and yard sales, and even recorded an album of their favorite sacred and secular songs to sell for $5 each.
Today, their dream has served thousands of students who have graduated from Neumann University. Alumni, friends, parents and corporate partners continue the rich tradition of giving back to Neumann.
Gifts, in all areas of the University and in varying amounts, enrich the academic and student experience and enhance the campus environment. Every student who embraces the Franciscan values makes our world a better place. Giving makes a difference at Neumann University.
