Elizabethtown College 2017-2018 Annual Report of Giving
Message from the President of the College, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Community Relations, and Chair of the BE MORE INSPIRED Campaign
At the close of 2018, we find ourselves reflecting about the academic year that was just completed as much as the year ahead of us.
In many ways, 2017-2018 was a landmark academic year for Elizabethtown College. Forever etched in our minds are the groundbreaking of the new Bowers Center for Sports, Fitness and Well-being and the BE MORE INSPIRED campaign successes that led to an elevated fundraising goal of $60 million. While there are so many other noteworthy highlights from the year, these stand out because they are the direct result of many generous donors. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends joined together to lift the College to new heights. We are truly inspired by the involvement of these members of our Elizabethtown College family.
It is in this spirit that we extend our sincerest gratitude to you for your generosity. Throughout 2017-2018, Elizabethtown College received impressive levels of support. It is through the volunteerism and financial contributions of those individuals listed throughout the 2017-2018 Report of Giving website that the College has been strengthened and enabled to grow. We are proud to share their names with you. The lists on the pages within this report also reflect a sampling of highlights made possible throughout this past year because of the generosity of these special Blue Jays.
Thank you for putting your confidence and trust in Elizabethtown College and its continuing mission to educate women and men for lives of service. Your support is humbling, gratifying and motivating. We look forward to doing everything we can to ensure that an Elizabethtown College education remains second to none.
