We asked and you said, Yes!
NSCAD University’s 2012-13 Annual Fund campaign was the most successful ever in its 125-year history. On behalf of the faculty, staff and students at NSCAD, I thank you for your much-needed support and regard it as an affirmation of the important work we do every day at this university.
In our 125th anniversary year, our goal was to raise $125,000 through the Annual Fund campaign. We surpassed that goal, raising $141,632 in total. But that’s not the only good news—giving is up by a whopping 66 per cent over last year. Our donors—209 altogether—dug deep; the average gift was $677.
Here are some more interesting statistics from our Annual Fund data: while alumni giving tripled in the past year, we also saw gains from all constituencies, including faculty and staff, friends of NSCAD and members of the NSCAD Board of Governors. The lion’s share of donations was directed to student assistance through scholarships and bursaries. Other donations went to “the area of greatest need” and the endowment fund.
I am very impressed with everyone’s efforts and I thank you so much.
In the fall, we’ll be asking you again to give to NSCAD’s 2013-14 Annual Fund campaign. Let’s build on what we started this year and see this crucial support for NSCAD University strengthen and solidify.
With best wishes,
Dr. Daniel O’Brien
President, NSCAD University
