Give toward Projects

Capital projects are a multiplying factor, as mission-critical campus projects positively affect our students’ learning and living experiences. So, when you give toward projects, you are supporting our mission to educate and equip learners to impact the world for Christ. Through your partnership in projects you are positively affecting recruitment and retention and advancing our strategic plans.

Some recently funded projects include the Harlow lounge; van wraps; refreshes to the lobby, Glock auditorium, and library entrance; refinishing the main gym floor; new windows; dorm mattresses; and more. 
“[The Harlow Lounge Renovation] has added great value to the residence experience by providing a high-quality community space right next to the residence halls. This project turned a mostly overlooked and underutilized area and made it the preferred hangout space!”

Opportunities for Partnership

New 15 Passenger Van - Gifts of Any Amount Welcome

The need for a new/new used 15-passenger van is apparent. The van will enable purposeful travel including the ensemble tour, student class trips, athletic games, recruitment, and engagement with regional assemblies and camps – all of which furthers our five pillars of future focus for the college, including increasing enrollment and providing robust athletics programs. We are asking alumni and other supporters of the college to contribute toward this project. Large and small gifts are welcome!


Project Endowment

Emmaus’s long-term strength is through purposeful endowment growth. When you support the Emmaus General Endowment Fund, you can provide lasting support with a gift of any amount. These funds allow the college to leverage many gifts, so large and small contributions all add up to long-term strength. The General Endowment Fund allows the college to invest in enhancement projects as needed. Support the endowment fund through any of our Giving Options

Student Spaces: Upgrade Furniture

For heavily used campus spaces, we hope to update significantly worn furniture. Replacing this will improve recruitment, retention and first impressions. Goals for FY24 are to replace furniture in the Third floor Lounge and in the Pollard lobby.

Maintenance Capital Projects

  • Front Windows
  • Replace HVAC controls in Smith Hall

Complete Smith Hall residence space

Completing the 4th and 5th floors of Smith Hall as student living space is overdue and the right thing to do to serve the long-term future of the College. As we create and build-out these two floors, we gain the flexibility to renovate our existing dated residence halls.
