Now ... More Than Ever

Fontbonne University's $20 million Comprehensive Campaign

Fontbonne University has always been an academic community that honors both faith and reason. This was the design of our founders and sponsors, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, and it remains both our current and future destiny.

Because of the complexity of modern day life, we continue to promote our time-honored institutional values of quality, respect, community, service, diversity, faith and Catholic presence.  In so doing, we are committed to academic excellence, a philosophy of "cura personalis" - or care for persons - and the conviction that we have a responsibility to encourage all our students to maximize their God-given potential.

In order to ensure both our commitments and convictions, the Fontbonne University Board of Trustees has authorized a comprehensive fund-raising campaign titled "Now...More than Ever."

This $20 million campaign is the largest in our history, and it will be transformative in nature. After 12 years as servant-leader president, I can assure you that Fontbonne has never been better positioned to move to the next level of success. We find great strength in our faculty and academic programs, in our reputation and public awareness, in our quality of campus life, in our outreach to the community, and in our Catholic identity.

As always, our success - made possible only through your partnership - is measured by the quality and contributions of our students as they fulfill their personal challenge to become leaders for a world in need. Therefore, it is on their behalf that I respectfully seek your leadership and support "Now ... More than Ever."

 - Dr. Dennis C. Golden, President of Fontbonne University
