Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Thanks to the tremendous support of Salus University’s Board of Trustees and executive leadership, this past year was the beginning of a major transformation in philanthropic giving at Salus.

Jacquie Patterson HeadshotIn fiscal year 2022, the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations returned to in-person alumni and friends events and successfully initiated fundraising for the Nyman Brothers Scholarship, the Robert E. Horne Summer Enrichment Program, the George S. Osborne College Scholarship and the University’s newest program, Orthotics and Prosthetics. All of this was accomplished while we surpassed our $1.2 million stretch goal, which was 25 percent higher than the previous year. A year before, that might have seemed unimaginable.

Our aspiration is to build a culture of philanthropy at Salus among all of our constituents. For us, that means more than encouraging individuals to give back — it’s about instilling in our internal and external communities a deep sense of gratitude for others. And, it’s also about creating meaningful engagement opportunities: we want our donors and alumni to see firsthand — and feel — the impact of their philanthropy.

On behalf of my colleagues in the Office Institutional Advancement, thank you for investing in Salus University and thank you for investing in our students.

Jacqueline Patterson, MPA
Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Community Relations
