Quick Facts

Goal $200,000,000
Timeframe Six years beginning June 1, 2004 and ending May 31st, 2010
What Counts As a comprehensive campaign, all gifts and pledges received during the campaign period will count toward the goal. This includes gifts for both unrestricted and restricted purposes, gifts for capital projects, gifts-in-kind (works of art, real estate, etc.), and planned gifts (trusts, annuities, etc.)
Reunions Reunions provide a wonderful opportunity to participate in the campaign as these gifts will count both for the campaign and for their reunions. For many donors, we may schedule their significant campaign ask during their reunion year.
The Annual Fund The Annual Fund is at the heart of the campaign and this is the vehicle through which most alums will participate. Increasing the Annual Fund will be critical to our ability to achieve the goals of the strategic plan such as financial aid, faculty development and enhancing programs like the sciences. As with reunion gifts, all annual fund gifts and pledges made during the campaign period will also count for the campaign.
Planned Gifts Planned gifts such as annuities and trusts that are executed by any donor during the campaign period all count toward the campaign total. Documented bequests will only count for donors who are 70 or older.
Chairs Wilma Stein Tisch '48, Susan Kettering Williamson '59, Sara Lee Lubin Schupf '62, John J.P. Howley '80
Volunteers The Campaign will be organized and managed by the Campaign Chairs and the Campaign Executive Committee. We will encourage other program volunteers (FOP, Annual Fund) to remain active and keep the campaign priorities front and center in their specific areas. We will also recruit project volunteers as needed (for specific initiatives like music or scholarship).
Priorities While all gifts and pledges received will count toward our goal, we will be raising funds for several specific purposes: annual support, financial aid, academic programs and services, capital projects (including the Arthur Zankel Music Center), and more.
