Major Gifts and Capital Giving
Major Gifts and Capital Campaigns are focused on securing high-value donations. Gifts may be given in one lump sum or over a period of years and can be earmarked as either “restricted” or “unrestricted.” They may be used to replenish and sustain reserves, as well as to fund everything from academic programs, to attracting, recruiting, and retaining outstanding faculty and staff.
A Capital Campaign is a school-wide effort to fund large-scale needs, including renovation and building projects, technology and campus improvements, or significant programmatic upgrades. These types of campaigns are well-publicized and usually take place over a period of years.
