to report that Fiscal Year 2013 was WLU’s most successful
fundraising year of all time!
Fiscal Year 2013 Highlights:
- Total Raised – $4.1 Million
- 316 New Donors
- Nine New “Major Donors” (gifts of $5,000 or more)
- 758 Alumni Donors Totaling $2.6 Million
- 131 Corporate or Foundation Donors Totaling $993,000
- 102 Employee Donors (32 percent of all staff!)
With your help we‘ve now set a high bar for Fiscal Year 2014. Yet we are confident that we can have another successful year and look forward to continuing our growing relationship with our alumni and friends.
As the Capital Campaign for a Great University heads into its second year we will continue to focus on funding projects like Campbell Hall of Health Sciences, Kelly Theatre and Russek Field.
However, there is an area of opportunity that alumni are encouraged to help with: our alumni giving percentage is just 4.2 percent. In order to secure much larger gifts for capital needs, Foundations and other major donors want to know the commitment of our constituency and this number is highlighted in grant applications and fundraising requests.
Gifts of $50, $25 or even $1 will grow our alumni participation percentage. We humbly ask for your support!
Again – thank you for all that you do! We hope to see you on the Hilltop soon!
