Acadia surpasses $75M fundraising goal to raise $86.8M

March 2, 2021
Acadia University’s Campaign for Acadia has raised $86.8M, surpassing its original fundraising goal of $75M. The funds will be used to support students, faculty, and staff, as well as the development of campus infrastructure. “Its success represents an important margin of opportunity for Acadia, enabling us to accomplish things that are beyond the scope of our usual operations,” said Acadia VP, Advancement Dr Rod Morrison. “Some of these are quite visible -- the renovation of our science facilities, for example, or the transformation of Patterson Hall into the home of the Manning School of Business -- while others are less conspicuous but equally impactful, such as millions of dollars for new student awards and support for teaching, research and academic programs.” Acadia (ON)
