Letter from the Campaign Chairman

Celebrating the Future 

Dear Friend,

The Campaign for Cottey College was the most comprehensive campaign ever held in the history of the College with the largest goal ever set at $35 million. Thanks to you, along with 20,052 other donors, the Campaign reached and exceeded the goal raising a total of $40.4 million.

Thanks to you, alumnae, P.E.O. chapters and members, faculty and staff, friends of the College, foundations and corporations, your gifts will have a tremendous impact on the future of the College. Thanks to you, funds were raised for endowments: $11.95 million for scholarships; $1.88 million for faculty chairs; $809,000 for library enhancements; and $3.08 million for other campus funds.

Thanks to you, $10.1 million was raised to build a state of the art instructional building for the fine arts where all classes and activities can be housed under one roof and for $12.67 million given for unrestricted funding to advance the mission of the school. Thanks to you, your financial support and personal interest will give more students a chance to attend this premier institution.

Thanks to you, Cottey College has a unique opportunity to rise among women’s colleges, to be nationally recognized, and to meet its mission to develop the talents of women as scholars and leaders.

With sincere appreciation for your gifts large and small,

Barbara Andes
