Capital Campaign

Construction of Franta Hall
In response to a more than 30 percent increase in new, full-time undergraduate students since 2015, emerging student trends and recognizing future needs, Goldey-Beacom College embarked on a $30 million, two-year major campus expansion and renovation project.

Would YOU like to leave a lasting legacy for future generations? The College has created numerous naming opportunities to give alumni and friends a chance to become a lasting part of current campus improvements.

William A. Franta Hall has been named from a generous $2 million gift. Take a moment and think about how you might like to leave a lasting impression for generations to come. Please contact Janine Sorbello, Director of External Affairs to talk about how you'd like to give back to the school. We offer many choices from naming a locker in the new athletics expansion project for $500 to naming a student lounge in William A. Franta Hall for $125,000 and many levels in between. Call or email Janine (302 225-6261 sorbello@gbc.edu) and she’ll help you build your legacy.

Your donation to the Goldey-Beacom College Capital Campaign will be matched up to $400,000 by the Longwood Foundation, bringing us one step closer to our goal!
