    Bridges to the Future

    Mahalo for helping us raise $118 Million for Chaminade University


    The Goal: In the summer of 2008, Chaminade University embarked on its most ambitious fundraising effort to date – raising $100 million by December 2018 to bridge our past successes with future initiatives.

    The Need: Capitalizing on the success of the $66 million Transformations campaign, Chaminade University continues to thrive as a place of purpose, promise, and success. The launch of the $100 million Bridges to the Future campaign demonstrates Chaminade’s commitment to addressing the ongoing need for access to quality higher education opportunities, particularly for students who might not otherwise be able to afford college.
