Launched In 2015, The Iona Forever Campaign Promised To:

  • support accessibility and affordability through scholarships;
  • attract, develop and advance a faculty that would provide a world-class academic experience;
  • enhance support for academic centers and institutes; and
  • responsibly develop campus infrastructure to provide the best learning and living environments.

On September 19, 2021 – Iona’s 81st birthday – the College celebrated the fulfillment of those promises and the conclusion of the most successful campaign in Iona’s history.

“For decades, Iona has carried forward the educational vision of Blessed Edmund Rice, preparing students to become leaders in their communities and in their professions,” said President Seamus Carey, Ph.D. “The work we do would not be possible without the generosity and steadfast support of our incredible alumni, friends and family.”

“As Br. Rice understood, education is the most powerful means of personal liberation, especially for first-generation students,” Carey continued. “These gifts made to Iona not only impact the lives of students; they impact families for generations to come.”

Campus may look very different today than in 1940, and because of you, we had the ability to adapt to the ever-changing and growing needs of our students while staying true to our mission.
