The Priorities

The Priorities of the Campaign for Moravian are divided into the following three categories:

Capital Projects

Comenius Hall is Moravian’s signature building but is in serious need of repairs, renovations and upgrades in order to maintain the structure and meet 21st century teaching standards.

Collier Hall of Science, though cutting edge when it opened in 1971, is now 40 years old and is showing its age. In addition, laboratories and other teaching spaces are in need of significant renovations to keep pace with the rapidly changing fields of biology, chemistry and physics.

Endowment for Students, Faculty and Programs

Endowed Scholarship Funds provide support for Moravian’s most pressing need for financial aid and scholarships for students. Once established, endowed funds support the College in perpetuity. An endowed scholarship fund can be established with a $25,000 commitment over 5 years.

Endowed Professorships ensure the long term viability of faculty positions as well as funding for the areas in which they teach.

Endowed Funds for Academic Programs ensure the long term viability of academic programs.

Annual Giving

Annual Fund gifts are one time gifts made each year that are utilized in the same year in which they are given. The most important area of annual giving is the Moravian Scholarship Fund which provides financial aid to current students.

Annual Giving Scholarships help address the need for more scholarships at a lower financial commitment and are funded with a $10,000 commitment over a four year period. The scholarship is not endowed and thus ends after four years.

Internship Stipends provide financial support for student internships with a commitment of $1,000 for one internship stipend.

SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) is a program that enables students to work with faculty mentors on applied research and creative projects. A gift of $4,500 will support one SOAR student in an area of the donor’s choosing.
