The mission of the Alvernia Fund is to secure and develop financial resources to strengthen the Alvernia educational experience, making it affordable and accessible to students from all economic backgrounds, while providing alumni and friends with meaningful opportunities to remain involved in the life of our University and students.

Every gift to the Alvernia Fund helps graduate skilled professionals shaped by strong ethical values who become leaders with the moral courage to make a difference in their local communities and the global society.

Make a Gift to Student Commons

  Donate »

This new 18,500 square-foot building will be attached to one of the innovative apartment buildings under construction in Founders Village. This project is a key focus of the Value & Vision campaign. The Campus Commons will be home to a large two-story fitness center, a dance and aerobics studio and a campus living room that will accommodate more than 100 students for leisure activities, study and programs. It will also provide space for clubs, organizations and student life offices.

Make a Gift to Vaya con Dios

  Donate »
Vaya con Dios (“Go with God”) is a partnership between Alvernia and our Bernardine Franciscan Sisters’ mission in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Through a Campus Ministry Alternative Spring Break, students will assist the Sisters with the mission operations, especially at their school, and experience life in the Los Tres Brazos barrio.  In a Faculty-led Service-Learning Biology/Communications Course, students will explore awareness, advocacy, and stewardship of communities through cultural, economic, and environmental sustainability projects, culminating in a two-week post-spring-semester service experience at the mission.  (Future elements will include study abroad, exchange programs, and long-term post-graduate service.)  A gift to Vaya con Dios will help defray the great travel and lodgings costs for the Alternative Break and the Service-Learning Course.
