Campaign Goals

As the pace of change presents new challenges, Manhattan must sustain—and strengthen—its legacy of success. That is the aim of Invest in the Vision: The Campaign for Manhattan. This $165 million funding effort has identified three top priorities: enhancing facilities; growing endowment for scholarships and faculty development; and securing unrestricted support. 

Why Now? 

Success always attracts attention. For a college its size, Manhattan often draws recognition from the media. Here is a list of our most recent rankings.

  • Students in class at desks attentively listening to professors
  • Manhattan ranked as the No.1 most transformative college in America, according to Money’s Best Colleges for Your Money;
  • Money magazine rated Manhattan on its list of 50 top-value colleges.
  • A PayScale report placed Manhattan in the top 4% of U.S. colleges and universities of U.S. colleges and universities in terms of ROI (return on investment);
  • For the fourth consecutive year, Forbes ranks Manhattan among its “Best Value Colleges: 300 Schools Worth the Investment”—and one of America’s 15 leading Catholic institutions.

Manhattan is dedicated to making this quality education accessible to all worthy students. However, college expenses place a severe strain on a growing number of families. In particular, the rising costs of providing an education strains smaller private institutions like Manhattan, which competes with better-endowed schools. Closing this gap is a primary aim of Invest in the Vision.

Who knows how many lives will be changed and dreams made possible because of a Manhattan College education. It often starts with giving and caring people, like you."
