Largest Campaign in State System History Tops $110M

Millersville University Celebrates Extraordinary Conclusion of Campaign

Millersville University’s “Imagine the Possible” fundraising campaign to support student success reached a record-breaking $110,056,873 on June 30. Not only was “Imagine the Possible” the largest fundraising campaign in University history, the campaign is the most successful fundraising effort in the history of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

“As the first campaign in Millersville University history focused entirely on students, fundraising priority areas included Scholarships, Student Learning Experiences, Marauder Athletics and Campus Revitalization,” says Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, president of Millersville University. “Because of the phenomenal success of the “Imagine the Possible” campaign, thousands of Millersville University students are achieving their dreams.”

The accomplishment is the culmination of a six-year fundraising campaign that surpassed a $90 million goal in March 2022 and topped $100 million in January 2023. The total of $110M+ exceeds the overall campaign fundraising goal by more than 22%.

“Donors to the campaign established 118 new scholarship endowments and 112 new named annual scholarship awards. This, coupled with contributions to existing scholarships, totaled $31,051,928 with $9,440,416 in scholarship dollars awarded to Millersville University students during the six years of the campaign.”

“When the “Imagine the Possible” campaign began with a three-year goal of $32 million in July 2017, attaining this remarkable fundraising success was beyond expectations,” says Wubah. “It is through the tremendous generosity of the entire Millersville University community that the campaign was able to set a record for private support at Millersville University.”

“With the outpouring of support from many generous donors, whose gifts of all sizes contributed to the campaign’s amazing results, the “Imagine the Possible” campaign celebrated incredible campaign milestones,” says Victor Ramos, Vice President for Advancement at Millersville. “The gifts will continue to make a legendary impact for future generations of students by providing transformative experiences.”
