Published in Annual Report - 2009
In FY09, Teachers College strengthened its successful fundraising endeavors, totaling $36.7 million in gifts and pledges, an increase of 16 percent from FY08. Overall, TC broadened and strengthened outreach to all constituencies (including community partners, donors and Trustees) and made significant progress in building infrastructure and collaborating with academic and administrative partners. Among the many successes:
- Foundation and Corporate giving totaled more than $15.8 million;
- Planned Giving recorded $16.1 million in realized and deferred gifts, including a 20 percent increase in membership in the Grace Dodge Society;
- Individual giving remained steady, yet the number of commitments from individual donors doubled from the previous year, which speaks to increased activity with our major gifts donors;
- The TC Fund increased by 2 percent over the prior year’s total and achieved its goal of $1.679 million via both renewable/replaceable gifts and designated realized bequests.
