More than 22,000 alumni, parents, and friends have supported the Live Connected, Lead Change campaign, propelling Lafayette’s most ambitious fundraising effort ever to a notable milestone, two-thirds of the way toward its $400 million goal.
Gifts, pledges, and bequests totaled $268 million as of Sept. 30, including more than $32 million received since the campaign’s public launch in New York last November (see “College Announces Historic Campaign,” Fall 2014).
Reflecting Lafayette’s distinctive strengths, the campaign has three main areas of emphasis, or pillars: Connecting Liberal Arts and Engineering, Fostering Innovation in Teaching and Learning,
and Connecting the Campus Community.
Within the pillars are 10 initiatives, with associated goals ranging from $10 million to $70 million, to build on the College’s strengths, solidify its standing among the nation’s most outstanding undergraduate institutions, and position it for future success. The campaign’s progress and impact are notable in many areas.
These are just some highlights of the campaign’s progress and impact. For much more news and information and to learn about supporting Live Connected, Lead Change, visit liveconnected.lafayette.edu.
