Despite the prevailing economic uncertainties of this past fiscal year, TC had another solid year of fundraising, with dramatic improvements in our various outreach efforts, across all constituencies and in diverse media. Strategic programmatic enhancements in Government Relations, Planned Giving, Alumni Relations and Public Relations have effectively set the stage for the important campaign-planning work that will be the focus of our efforts in Fiscal Year 2011.

Fundraising from individuals, through major and planned gifts, surpassed the goal of $8.1 million by more than $1.2 million (15 percent). The TC Fund achieved its goal of $1.775 million, a five percent increase over the previous year and the largest annual fund campaign in the College’s history. The Fund was able to reach this level of achievement through an eight percent growth in Dewey Circle membership, and unrestricted, designated realized bequests.
