Drexel Fund

“Thank you for making Drexel an innovative and exciting place to learn. We would not be here without you!”

– Jon, Sophomore, College of Engineering

Last year, your gifts to the unrestricted Drexel Fund impacted Jon and over 24,000 other students, helping to define their college experience and setting the stage for their future lives and careers. Here, some of our students tell you in their own words what your contributions have meant to them.

“Thank you so much for all of your support. You make the opportunities I love taking advantage of possible!”

– Sarah, Sophomore, Westphal College of Media Arts & Design

You brought Drexel’s knowledge base and services to our West Philadelphia and North Philadelphia communities by helping us open the doors of the Dana and David Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships and break ground on the expansion of the Stephen and Sandra Sheller 11th Street Family Health Services Center.


“As an international student, coming to the beautiful Drexel campus has been a great experience. A big thank you for your support in making Drexel’s campus so lively.”

– Divya , PhD Candidate , College of Engineering

You helped expand the University’s research capabilities by allowing us to open the A.J. Drexel Institute for Energy and the Environment, the Application Development Laboratory, the Drexel University Cybersecurity Institute and the Innovation Center@3401, among other facilities.

“I was first able to go to Drexel because of my generous scholarship. Once I got here, I joined an a cappella group and I am now the president of the organization.”

– Amber, Junior, College of Nursing and Health Professions

You helped more than 76% of our students receive scholarships so they could learn and grow both personally and professionally through the results-driven, hands-on education Drexel is known for.


“I am attending Drexel for the co-op program, and without your support I might not be here. I hope that I can help out my community as my way of thanking you.”

– Luan, Freshman, College of Computing and Informatics

You helped close to 100% of Drexel’s co-op program students gain valuable, hands-on work experience with over 1600 employers in the United States and around the world.

“I have seen the growth Drexel has made over the past four years and it has been a blessing to be a part of it. I appreciate the new opportunities that are now provided thanks to your donation.”

– Denzel, Pre-Junior, Bennett S. LeBow College of Business

You brought continued improvements to our campus, allowing us to, among other projects, complete the renovation of Nesbitt Hall; open the doors of the new Gerri C. LeBow Building; continue construction of Three Parkway, future home of the College of Nursing and Health Professions; and continue work on the Summit, which will add 580,000 square feet of student housing, dining and retail services to campus.

This is just a small sampling of what your combined efforts helped make possible last year. Thank you for supporting Drexel Fund, and for making a difference in our students’ lives.
