The Immaculata Fund

The Immaculata Fund is the backbone of the University’s annual fundraising efforts, providing structure and flexibility for the University’s fiscal resources. A strong Immaculata Fund is crucial to support our greatest priority—our students.

  • Thirty-seven percent of money raised from individuals and foundations during fiscal year 2016 was allocated to the Immaculata Fund, which provides support to Immaculata’s greatest priorities, student experiences and financial aid.
  • Addresses implementation of new educational technology. The “extra boost” that alumni, parents, and friends provide allows us to keep up with state-of-the-art technology, teaching standards, and a quality education that prepare students for today’s and tomorrow’s job market.
  • Supports student-centered education. Immaculata Fund gifts provide students with the opportunity to engage in a learning community that includes internships, international study programs, cooperative education, field and laboratory research experience, and service learning—which enhance their classroom experience.
  • Strengthens our faculty and their teaching. Private gifts allow faculty to provide innovative experience in the classroom through participating in scientific and scholarly symposia and research. This in turn benefits students who get to see faculty at work, applying their expertise to solve problems and make new discoveries in their fields.
  • Enriches campus co-curricular life by funding guest speakers, films, recitals, concerts, and sporting events and extends the Immaculata experience by providing educational and extra-curricular opportunities that reach beyond the classroom.
  • Provides the same and continued opportunities for future students. Donor commitment and support allow Immaculata to continue the same tradition of a Catholic education that provided the relevant educational experience that Immaculata students have received in the past.


The Immaculata Fund invites donors to select an area of special interest.
