The final results are in. Bryant’s historic capital campaign, Expanding the World of Opportunity: The Campaign for Bryant’s Bold Future, ended December 31, 2019 and raised  $111 million – more than triple the goal of the previous campaign and surpassing both its initial goal of $75 million and the stretch goal of $100 million. Read the announcement here. 

The generosity of more than 24,000 donors has made this campaign, the most comprehensive fundraising effort in Bryant’s 156-year history, a huge success with extraordinary impact. 

 

Be a Part of Something Big

 

The success of the campaign follows on the heels of Bryant Giving Day. Thanks to more than 1,600 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends, The Bryant Fund raised over $701,000 to support the University.  For this, we are grateful.

Annual gifts come in all sizes, from a few dollars up to $100,000 or more. Your enthusiasm sends an important message to others and it provides tremendous advantages to Bryant students -- advantages that will last a lifetime.

Support Bryant's students with a gift to The Bryant Fund. 

Making a gift to Bryant can be a life-changing experience for you and for generations of students. Cash contributions are the simplest way to support the University, but there are many ways to give. Your contribution is welcome in whatever form is most advantageous for you.

Your giving transforms Bryant by providing annual and endowed scholarships, enriched academic experiences, faculty and curricular enhancements, and world-class facilities. We recognize and appreciate gifts at all levels.
