The Momentum Campaign: Extraordinary Impact

The Momentum Campaign: Extraordinary Impact

Something big is coming.

Adelphi University on Long Island, New York is embarking on a historic comprehensive fundraising campaign to raise $100 million by 2027. The Momentum Campaign: Extraordinary Impact will create scholarships, enhance academics, boost career outcomes, further campus renovations, and transform our University.

Six Strategic Priorities Are Supported by the Momentum Campaign

With a powerful strategic plan, Momentum 2, to guide our steps forward,  we will elevate Adelphi in six critical areas:

  • Scholarships and access to an Adelphi education
  • Academic excellence to prepare students for a changing world
  • Life-changing Student experiences and opportunities
  • A modern and beautiful campus to call home
  • A diverse community where all students flourish
  • Adelphi Fund: one fund for everyone and everything at Adelphi

My Thanks Go to You

At Adelphi, Momentum is a catalyst for transformation, propelling dreams into reality and fostering a community where aspirations thrive.

Meet a driven student-athlete, whose leadership as co-captain of her team is matched only by her fervent ambition to pursue a career in forensic anthropology.

Encounter a compassionate soul from Lebanon, honored as a Newman Civic Fellow, whose initiative to combat food insecurity on campus has sparked tangible change.

Listen to the poignant narrative of a student who was inspired at an early age to want to make a difference in the medical field.

More Than Fundraising

Our multiyear Momentum campaign is all about continuing Adelphi’s extraordinary impact on student lives as a premier institution of higher education. The Momentum Campaign: Extraordinary Impact is guided by the key goals of our ambitious five-year strategic plan, prioritizing Adelphi’s mission, people and resources, and sustaining our long history of promoting connection, innovation and transformation.

Building Momentum

The “Quiet” Phase

Our campaign is currently in a “quiet phase,” focused on building excitement from the ground up—with our community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors. Internal events and a cross-country tour are currently in the news among Panthers. 

During the quiet phase, our alumni, donors and friends are learning about the campaign when they attend one of our cross-country Momentum 2 Tour events. At these gatherings, we all share our inspiring Adelphi stories of impact and transformation.

Stay tuned for campaign updates in our newsletters, on this website, and in special University publications, like our annual President’s Report.

The “Big Launch”

Our 24th annual Adelphi University President’s Gala on September 21, 2024, in Garden City, New York, marks the official launch of The Momentum Campaign: Extraordinary Impact. It will be a stunning night of celebration, pride and gratitude recognizing, our most outstanding supporters and Adelphi’s mission.

Additional campaign launch events for Adelphi’s alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students will take place in September 2024 as we continue the celebration of this major milestone together. If you’re a Panther or share our Panther Pride, mark your calendars for Adelphi’s eighth annual Spirit Weekend!
