We are excited to announce The Campaign for Messiah University: Learning for Life, Transforming the World – a $75 million campaign that supports our vision to educate students for a lifetime of learning opportunities, including engaging our students and alumni beyond the undergraduate and graduate programs to include certificates and enhanced learning courses. This campaign encompasses several broad areas that support our efforts to fulfill our vision. They include: The Messiah Fund & Scholarship Aid, Scholarship and Program Endowments, New Facilities, and Estate Planning Gifts.

progress bar of fundraising, $75 million and counting!

We have already reached several milestone accomplishments, including the construction of the Larsen Finance Lab, Martin Dining Commons, the Falcon Fitness Center, Sawyer Gymnasium, Jordan Court in Hitchcock Arena, a new lacrosse field, the resurfacing of Anderson Field, and, most recently, the Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center. Further, we have significantly increased scholarship endowment and direct aid resources for our students. In fact, our generous alumni, parents and friends of Messiah have helped us achieve the $75 million, and the exciting part is, the campaign doesn’t wrap up until December 31!

We deeply believe the world needs Messiah graduates now more than ever. By raising additional funds, we will be able to continue assisting students with scholarship aid and other significant resources as they prepare to transform the world in the service of God’s Kingdom.

Messiah Distinctives

At Messiah, we are committed to academic excellence and gracious Christianity, preserving core values that are part of the institution's heritage of the past 100+ years while also embracing many of the important distinctives of different Christian traditions. Messiah faculty, staff and students learn to value and respect those commonalities and differences, resulting in the development of a Christian educational community committed to the love of God and the love of neighbor. Please join our Messiah community as together we invest in the opportunity for the next generation of Messiah students to engage the big questions of life and faith as they prepare to lead and serve their communities with competence, compassion, and a commitment to reconciliation.
