The Campaign for SPU Progress Report

TOTAL GIVING TO The Campaign for Seattle Pacific University stood at $45.7 million in gifts and pledges by the end of the second quarter of 2004. In the 12 months previous, donors gave a generous $8 million: $1.2 million to the Science Initiative, $5 million to the Endowment Initiative, $1.3 million to The University Fund Initiative and $.5 million to other Campaign efforts.

The Campaign is the largest fund-raising drive in University history, one designed to better position Seattle Pacific as a change agent for good in the community and the world. The remaining $7.2 million needed to meet The Campaign goal of $52.85 million will come from a variety of sources. As always, alumni, Fellows and friends will provide the backbone of funding, while remaining dollars must come from benefactors, foundations and corporations who resonate with the SPU vision.“

We thank God for the outpouring of support from Seattle Pacific supporters,” says Vice President for University Advancement Bob McIntosh. “We’re nearing the close of The Campaign and ask everyone to keep us in their prayers and giving plans as we enter the homestretch.”
