Two Missions Aligned

Neumann University and Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education

Upon raising $15 million by October 25, 2025, Neumann University will receive an additional $15 million from Ed Snider Youth Hockey and Education to construct the Ed Snider Ice Arena on campus.  The matching gift is the largest ever at Neumann University and will support Neumann’s academic and athletic programs and under-resourced youth in the local community.

"When life confronted me with challenges, both SNIDER and Neumann gave me the support I yearned for. The support my family needed. They provided me with opportunity - academically and professionally. They've prepared and inspired me to do the same for others."
