Annual Support

Consider a gift to annual giving

Annual giving is vital to achieving our campaign goal. Throughout the initiative, we must raise funds to address the university’s ongoing operating needs and to build a framework for sustained financial support over the longer term. Donations of every size will play a critical role in the ultimate success of the campaign. 10,000 Reasons will provide opportunity for engagement and meaningful participation from every member of Salem State’s diverse constituency.

$8.5 million in annual giving support will:

  • Fund the university’s most critical and pressing needs
  • Fuel emerging academic and capital innovations
  • Provide flexible resources that can be used immediately across campus
