WHY WE GIVE...
"I support Neumann because Neumann lives it’s mission everyday in all ways. Neumann wants their students to succeed and provides the opportunities for them to be their best selves as they launch new pathways in life."
Sr. Pat Smith '72
"A graduate of Our Lady of Angels College, now Neumann University, I've been blessed to have had opportunities to serve, throughout the years, as a member of the board of trustees, corporation, and faculty, experiencing the growth, spirit and mission of NU from various perspectives. As a donor, I continue to play a small but vital part, with so many other donors, in the continued growth of an awesome Franciscan university and the students that it serves."
Curtis J. Crowther '90
I hope to be able to assist first-generation students to benefit from all that Neumann has to offer so they can experience the same type of life-changing impact that I did.
I give to Neumann because I could never in my lifetime give back even close to what I have received, but at least I can try...
My experience at Neumann has, in great part, helped me to become the person I am and allowed me to achieve many of my goals in life. Although I can never give back what was essentially priceless, I do what I can to pay it forward.
Joseph P. Crawford '08
When I went back to college as an adult it was difficult. The direction I received and the support was phenomenal. I received my college degree because of that support. Going to Neumann University was a great decision and giving my dollars to support the community is the least I can do to help that community.
