The University of Findlay is embarking on the largest fundraising campaign in its 140-year history. A gala event will kick off the Together We Will Campaign on Oct. 8 at Alumni Memorial Union on UF’s campus. The event is part of the University’s 2022.
The gala will feature a buffet dinner, live music by the band Not Fast Enuf, dancing, wine and beer, followed by the 14th annual homecoming fireworks display. During the celebration, guests will hear about the transformational fundraising goal and about the campaign’s initiatives, which include scholarships, the annual fund, capital improvements, programmatic support and endowed faculty and coaching positions. The strong start to the campaign will also be publicly announced.
Cost for the event, which is open to the public, is $50 per person. For UF faculty, staff, and young alumni who graduated between 2012 and 2022, the cost is $45 per person. Sponsorships are also available: Gold Sponsors, $1,000; Silver Sponsors, $500; and Bronze Sponsors, $100.
