With the end of the fiscal year, the Department of Advancement would like to share some of the year’s successes.

It’s been one year since the Foundation has been merged into the Department of Advancement and our dedication to raising funds to support the College and our students remains our top priority.

Over the past 12 months, our small (but mighty) team has worked with donors, supporters, influencers, and employees to raise over $800,000 in donations.
