Class of 1970 Scholarship Endowment to be Established at the 50th Reunion

The 50th reunion of the Class of 1970 will mark a tremendous milestone in the lives of these Niagara alumni. It will also provide a wonderful opportunity for classmates to expand their support of NU by making a special commitment to the university.

A few years ago, a small group of committed classmates decided that the Class of 1970 could make a lasting impact on the university by establishing an endowed scholarship--a fund that would provide financial assistance to NU students in perpetuity. The need is great, as 98 percent of all students receive some type of support.

It was also believed that starting to fundraise for this scholarship well in advance of their 50th reunion in 2020 would allow plenty of time to achieve an audacious goal of $250,000.

**As of February 2020, we have raised over $212,000 toward our goal of $250,000. Please consider donating what you can, even if you don’t plan on attending. It is our hope that the Class of 1970  can come together and support this worthy scholarship and Niagara University where we all got our start.

With a gift of any size, you can help us reach this goal! Thank you for your support.
