Excelsior College Doubles 50th Anniversary Campaign Goal



Excelsior College is proud to announce that the original 50th anniversary campaign goal of $750,000 was surpassed. To build on the Elevate campaign’s rapid success and pursue emerging student financial needs, Excelsior has increased the campaign goal to $1.5 million. Due to donor generosity, $55,000 is needed to reach the new goal.

Excelsior’s commitment to student scholarships remains steadfast. All donations to the campaign will continue to go directly to student scholarships. Donations received now through June 30, 2022, will be earmarked for students who are within 12 credits of completing their degree to help students close to degree completion fulfill their academic goal.

“We are humbled by the outpouring of support shown by the Excelsior community, whose giving has far surpassed our expectations,” said Jamie Hicks-Furgang, executive director of development and alumni engagement. “The diversification of giving among our community, including generous planned gifts, has been exciting. These donations will be transformational for the College and will allow us to begin to lay a foundation for future initiatives.”

In addition to donations from alumni, staff, faculty, and members of the board of trustees, Excelsior is thankful for gifts from the Carl E. Touhey Foundation, the Massry Charitable Foundation, the Wright Family Foundation, Business for Good Foundation, SEFCU, KeyBank, and Empire Blue Cross that make an immediate and lasting difference.
