Gateway to the Future
Future growth and ability to impact our students and region depends on the commitment of trustees, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and supporters of Simpson. We invite you to partner with us in this exciting endeavor as we equip the next generation of leaders to impact the world through their time, talents and service.
Your tax-deductible gift to the Gateway to the Future Campaign will benefit:
Student Scholarship Fund ($4.5 million)
Raised and pledged to date: $3.9 million
As the student population grows, the amount needed to offset student costs will increase. Money raised directly benefits Simpson University students.
Music Building ($3.5 million)
Raised and pledged to date: $560.000
This building will include fully equipped classrooms, teaching studios, sound-proof practice rooms, a performance hall and a black-box theater for drama. The Music Building is a significant upgrade from the current space and will benefit the growing emphasis on the arts at Simpson and in the Redding community.
Science and Nursing Building ($3.5 million)
Raised and pledged to date: $1.9 million
This structure is desperately needed to serve a growing number of science students and to resource Simpson University’s commitment to expand the sciences and related curriculum. The Science Building will provide classrooms, laboratories, and faculty offices.
Curriculum Development Fund ($500,000)
Raised and pledged to date: $142,300
The university has embarked on an aggressive curriculum expansion plan that will increase our enrollment, fill out our program offerings and meet pressing workforce needs of this region of California. Several new majors have been implemented. Additional majors are planned, and the cost associated with the startup of these programs is significant. An investment in this fund provides opportunity to extend Simpson University’s mission to additional areas of study and career opportunities.
Faculty Development Fund ($1 million)
Raised and pledged to date: $862,000
Universities must attract, develop and retain excellent faculty. Those who teach and lead students are so critical to the future of Simpson University. These resources directly benefit faculty in their professional growth, research and writing.
