Campus Life Donors Strengthen Community
Athletics and recreation at Emory are stronger today because of the Michael Kaminsky Intramural Park, part of a $1 million memorial gift to the Division of Campus Life. Kaminsky 89C can see this gift at work in the improved fields and facilities at the intramural park, and his endowment funding ensures the continued growth and quality of intramural athletics.
Chaired by Emory Board of Trustees member Laura Hardman 67C, the campaign for Campus Life raised more than $8 million—far exceeding its $5 million goal and creating countless leadership and service opportunities for Emory students. Philanthropic priorities going forward include athletics and recreation, the Barkley Forum debate team, leadership and service programs, and unrestricted gifts to the Campus Life Fund for Excellence.

Dean's 2013 Priorities
Philanthropy provides alumni, parents, and friends the opportunity to enhance student life at Emory in several ways, says Ajay Nair, senior vice president and dean of Campus Life. Funding priorities for 2013 include the following:
Athletics and Recreation. Donor gifts can support individual varsity, club, and intramural teams and strengthen the student-athlete experience.
Barkley Forum. Support can build the student travel fund and volunteer opportunities related to this nationally recognized, award-winning debate team and community service organization.
Office of Student Leadership and Service. Donors can help students turn ethics into action through leadership and service programs including Volunteer Emory.
Campus Life Fund for Excellence. These pooled annual contributions allow the senior vice president and dean to invest in strategic priorities that enhance the student experience throughout the year.
