The Four Priorities

Memorial Hall

We envision an expanded and renovated Memorial Hall as a thriving hub for the health sciences—enriching a structure that was built in 1922 thanks to the fundraising efforts of alumnus Reinhold Niebuhr.

Athletics and Recreation

Improvements to Faganel Hall and Langhorst Field will provide an upgraded experience for thousands of students, coaches, spectators and community members—whether they are competing or watching the University’s Division III athletics programs or utilizing the facilities for intramural and recreational activity.

The Endowment

Growth of the endowment and restricted funds for multi-specific purposes, such as endowed faculty chairs, programs and scholarships, is essential for maintaining short-term liquidity while preserving the long-term financial security and stability of Elmhurst University.

The Annual Fund

The Elmhurst University Annual Fund gives supporters a way to contribute to students’ education through scholarships and operational and programmatic support. Our goal of reaching $1 million annually makes the same impact as an additional $20 million in endowment dollars.
