Towson University’s capital campaign hits $40 million milestone
Endowment to benefit student scholarships and program funding
TOWSON, Md (Dec. 18, 2009)—Towson University’s capital campaign “Growing a University—The Campaign for Towson,” has hit the $40 million milestone. The campaign, which will continue through June 2011, has a goal of $50 million.
“Since we launched this campaign in 2004, we have been grateful to have had the strong support of our alumni, corporations, foundations and other friends,” said Gary N. Rubin, vice president for University Advancement. “Given the difficult economic climate we are in, the support we have received is especially noteworthy,” he added.
Student scholarships and program funding are the beneficiaries of “Growing a University.” “The contributions, which have come to us from a variety of sources, are motivated by the donors’ recognition of Towson University’s quality, tradition and promising future,” said Donna Mayer, associate vice president for development.
The largest gift received during the campaign to date is a $10.2 million gift to the College of Science and Mathematics from the Robert M. Fisher Memorial Foundation. The college has been named in honor of the late Jess and Mildred Fisher.
