GCSU President Dorothy Leland has announced the first comprehensive fundraising campaign in the university’s history, with a goal of $10.35 million by the end of 2012.
That's according to a GCSU news release.
The public phase has $7.68 million raised to date. During the past two years, Georgia College has been quietly building the foundation of philanthropic support in anticipation of this campaign, which will affect lives across the campus, capitalize on our existing strengths, expand upon our mission and lead us to extraordinary accomplishments.
“Pillars for the Future: Campaign to Sustain Excellence” is led by alumnus and Atlanta Attorney Stan Wilson, and a committee of university friends and alumni who, like Wilson, are trustees of the Georgia College Foundation. Their leadership and support through rough economic times has led Georgia College to this announcement, much further along than they originally would have imagined.
