In a statement released October 19, 2018, Wofford College announced the launch of the public phase of its most ambitious fundraising campaign in the history of the college, “For Wofford: The Campaign for Wofford College,” with a goal of raising $300 million by October 2022.
Arthur Criscillis, Ed.D., Managing Partner at Alexander Haas, has been providing fundraising counsel for Wofford College’s “For Wofford” campaign. Through this partnership, the college has already raised $262 million toward the overall campaign goal. Among the campaign’s notable accomplishments are the new Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts, the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium and more than $32 million for endowed scholarships.
Four essential pillars of the Wofford experience serve as the key priorities of the “For Wofford” comprehensive fundraising campaign:
- Student Opportunity in an Inclusive Community: Recruiting and retaining outstanding students and providing access to a superior liberal arts education through endowed scholarship funding.
- Excellence in Academics: Attracting and supporting faculty who will engage, educate and mentor students and provide academic program support to enhance the liberal arts experience.
- Distinctive Student Experiences: Supporting hands-on, experiential learning that occurs across fields, disciplines and programs designed to prepare superior students for meaningful lives as citizens, leaders and scholars.
- Our Historic Campus: Improving the physical campus to create dynamic learning and living spaces that encourage discovery and collaboration and that make Wofford College distinctive.
