Towson University’s capital campaign reaches $30 million
$1 million available for scholarships and program support
July 8, 2008 (Towson, Md.)—“Growing a University: The Campaign for Towson,” has passed the $30 million milestone on the way to meeting its $50 million goal.
Launched in July 2004, Towson University’s largest capital campaign to date has a goal of $50 million and will conclude in 2011.
Campaign Chair Molly Shock said, “It is quite encouraging to note that more than $2 million was raised in the annual fund drive for FY08, contributing significantly to the total of $6.36 million raised this year.”
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.
More than $1 million will be available from the university’s endowment during the current fiscal year to provide scholarship assistance and program support.
Towson University’s Vice President for University Advancement Gary Rubin said, “These historic benchmarks bode well for this capital campaign and for future fund-raising support. It is testimony to the recognition and the importance of Towson University in the region.”
