Office of University Advancement

Statement of Purpose

Few vehicles have the opportunity to impact the life of the University, as does charitable giving. University Advancement seeks to create philanthropic opportunities and partnerships for the University's many alumni and friends. By engaging individuals, businesses, foundations and others in the life of the University, we create meaningful philanthropic partnerships as vehicles for charitable giving to Fairleigh Dickinson University.
