Impact & Gratitude Report


While many faithful givers continue to honor their pledges and new donors are still targeting specific projects, the Forward campaign is being brought to a close. Our community is filled with thankfulness as we examine how God has worked through your generosity and support these past four years. It is a time to celebrate what the Lord has done and is doing at Cairn!

Forward has equipped Cairn University, through many exciting projects, for the years ahead. In the coming months, we anticipate the opening of the G. Patrick Stillman Athletic Complex, which will provide a new center for our campus life together. This is the final stage that will serve as a testament to the success of the campaign. Couple that with other campus improvements, the creation of new majors and programs, and the continual financial support of our students through The Cairn Fund, and we cannot deny the impact of those who chose to give to Forward.

Knowing that we are called to walk a different path, we move ahead and look to the horizon for what the Lord would have for us next.

Improving Student Affordability

Your generosity has provided more students with the opportunity to pursue a biblical education, regardless of their ability to afford it.


“Growing up in Thailand, I had always dreamed of attending a Christian university in America. But financially speaking, that was going to be impossible. Receiving the ICSLS scholarship has not only been a financial blessing, but also an academic, relational, and spiritual one as well.”

Expanding Academic Opportunities

Your generosity has expanded Cairn’s reach through the addition of academic programs.

“My computer science internship turned into a full-time software engineering job. Because Cairn launched majors in technology, I had the opportunity to prepare for a career field I’ve always wanted to be in while still receiving the Christ-centered education that Cairn has always offered.”

“The lacrosse team is looking forward to competing in the new Stillman Athletic Complex. Offering lacrosse has brought a lot of great men and women to Cairn, and we are grateful for the opportunity to play together, study together, and grow together in our faith.”

The Impact & Gratitude Report highlights the many goals the Forward campaign has accomplished. Above all else, we are thankful for your financial and prayerful support of Cairn University as we continue to educate students to serve Christ in the church, society, and the world as biblically minded, well-educated, and professionally competent men and women of character.
