Elon LEADS: Our University Campaign

During Elon LEADS, donors will support four key priorities to help reach our goal of $250 million. Each priority provides opportunities to make a lifelong impact through endowed giving, as well as an immediate impact through gifts to Elon’s annual funds.

There are countless other funding opportunities, and your gifts of any size—to any area of campus—all count as part of the campaign.

Where will you make your impact?

Graduates the World Needs

Deepening funding for scholarships is the top priority of the Elon LEADS Campaign. More than half of our $250 million goal will be designated for financial aid to support students with high financial need and those who need moderate levels of support. We will reach this goal through all areas of support, including endowment and annual gifts, as well as estate and other planned gifts.

Engaged Learning

The Elon Experiences programs—global engagement, undergraduate research, internships, service and leadership—prepare graduates with the leadership and analytical-thinking skills employers seek. We will increase access to these life-changing engaged learning programs.
