#1: Historic Fundraising Campaigns

Millersville University’s top story of the year highlights two important fundraising campaigns.

Our #1 story this year celebrates two incredible fundraising milestones: Millersville’s “Imagine the Possible” campaign and the annual One Day Give event.

Imagine the Possible

The “Imagine the Possible” fundraising campaign concluded in August this year, reaching a record-breaking $110,056,873, making it the most successful fundraising effort in the history of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

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%.

This was the first campaign focused entirely on students, so the priority areas for donations included Scholarships, Student Learning Experiences, Marauder Athletics and Campus Revitalization.

This year’s 10th annual One Day Give raised $582,465 from 2,026 gifts. These gifts will support student scholarships, Millersville athletics, the EPPIIC Student Compassion Fund that assists students facing undue financial hardships who need emergency assistance, and more. 15 new scholarships were also created during this year’s fundraiser.

Thank you to everyone who made 2023 a year to remember. Happy new year from MU to you!
