Gifts with Impact
As you’ll read in this issue of the Campaign Chronicle, Emory has received a number of major, high-impact gifts in 2011 that will touch people and programs across the University, including undergraduate financial aid, breast cancer care and research, medical education, the library, and public health.
These major gifts are coming from a diverse group of people and organizations that share two common values. They are committed to making the world a better place, and they believe an investment in Emory is a good place to start.
The generosity of these donors—two alumni, two foundations, and an Emory executive—has brought us to 75 percent of our campaign goal. Our giving total for this fiscal year through the end of February, $71.6 million, surpassed our $58.5 million total for the same period last year.
This exciting news reflects the loyalty of our donors and predicts the best possible outcome for Campaign Emory. During the final months of the campaign, which ends in December 2012, enthusiastic support from all parts of our extended community will help us finish strong.
