Autumn 2004 | Volume 27, Number 4 | Campaign

The Campaign for SPU Progress Report

Total giving to The Campaign for Seattle Pacific University reached 93 percent of the overall goal, or $49.3 million, by the end of the third quarter of 2004. During the summer, The University Fund Initiative joined the Endowment Initiative and Restricted Annual Fund/Other Capital category in reaching their independent goals for The Campaign.

But a gap of $3.55 million remains in reaching the total Campaign goal of $52.85 million. “We appreciate all the prayers and expressions of financial support that have flooded in,” says Vice President for University Advancement Bob McIntosh. “The last quarter of this year will be especially critical for putting us over the top and allowing us to move forward on our initiatives.”

Campaign giving for the summer months finished higher in 2004 than 2003 with The University Fund and Endowment initiatives setting the pace. If the momentum continues through the autumn, the University will make steady progress toward the target. To achieve the goal, however, a significant number of gifts are needed at all levels. Donations of various kinds are welcome, including current cash gifts and deferred planned gifts.

My Response
For Sharon Hartnett, assistant professor of education, diversity reflects a piece of heaven on earth. “After all, heaven is a multicultural place,” she says.
