Fredonia, N.Y. — May 2, 2008 — SUNY Fredonia and the Fredonia College Foundation today announced the public phase of a five-year, $15 million capital campaign — the longest and largest capital campaign in Fredonia’s 182-year history.
The dollars generated during the campaign, entitled, “Doors to Success: the Campaign for Fredonia,” will be used primarily to fund scholarships, educational enrichment, academic program enhancement and cultural programming.
The current campaign’s $15 million goal represents a nearly 42 percent increase from the $10.6 million generated at the close of the previous campaign in 2003. Through March 31, 2008, more than $4.5 million had been raised during the current campaign’s silent phase.
“This is a very exciting and especially meaningful time for all of us on the Fredonia College Foundation Board,” said Kurt W. Maytum, Chairman of the Fredonia College Foundation Board, and President and Chief Technology Officer of DFT Communications.“We are seeing the fruits of our efforts through the unwavering support of our donors, and their belief in the importance of higher education. They also believe that we can always find ways to make SUNY Fredonia — a clear crown jewel of cultural activity within Western New York — even better. And they believe this so strongly that they are willing to give substantially of themselves, both through financial and volunteer support.”
