The $5 million grant to Creighton University is one of $123 million in surprise grants awarded by Trustees of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust to 71 Arizona nonprofits.
The total — $143,623,068 in total commitments — far exceeded Creighton’s previous fundraising record of $80,600,165 in 2018.
On Wednesday, May 12, Creighton celebrated the ceremonial groundbreaking of the CL Werner Center for Health Sciences Education, a new facility that will dramatically change the west side of campus.
This month, Archbishop George Lucas blessed the St. Peter Faber, SJ Chapel, located in the Mike and Josie Harper Center, and consecrated the altar. Design elements of the chapel include icons of St. Peter Faber, SJ, and the Madonna della Strada, a prayers and petitions wall, and a chapel cave.
This Creighton Giving Day, you can help us do something extraordinary — raise $1 million for dozens of causes that support our students, faculty, staff and friends. We’re hoping to make this our most successful Giving Day yet!
