Campaign is three-quarters of way to goal


Several supporters made significant major and planned gifts in October, adding $4 million to the Campaign for Connecticut College.

Their gifts, combined with the gifts of alumni, parents and friends who continue to support the College through the Annual Fund, pushed the Campaign past the $150 million mark – more than three-quarters of the way to goal with less than three years to go.

Planned gifts continue to be a key component of the Campaign's success. The College welcomes Ken Dolbashian as senior planned giving officer; he will meet with people who are interested in making planned gifts and connect with those who have already given. Dolbashian comes to the College from the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, where he was senior associate for planned and major gifts.

"All gifts – annual, major and planned gifts – are taking Connecticut College to a new level of excellence. You can see the impact of Campaign support every day, in every program and in every building on our campus," said President Lee Higdon.

This loyal support comes on the eve of the College's Centennial in 2011.

"We have so much to celebrate and so much to be proud of," Higdon said. "We have a tremendous legacy. With Campaign support we are building on that legacy and shaping our future."
