An incredible success. Further to go.
By Brett Vermilyea
Binghamton University has some staunch supporters. Since the launch of Bold.Brilliant.Binghamton — The Campaign for Binghamton University, people believing in Binghamton's mission — to provide a stellar yet accessible education — have donated nearly $1 million a month and innumerable hours of time.
We've had some big successes, with nearly 150 supporters contributing gifts of at least $50,000. And, recently, Charles Kim '98 made a pledge of $1 million to the School of Management, the single, largest cash commitment from an alumnus in University history. Though large gifts like this may get most of the attention, another 27,000 alumni and friends have donated at levels that made sense for them. Their efforts add up to more than $13.6 million to date, and continue to grow.
The Bold.Brilliant.Binghamton campaign closes June 30, 2012. During these last 18 months, join the thousands of fellow alumni who have opened up access to a multitude of students by helping the Binghamton University Foundation establish and distribute thousands of scholarships. Join the mission to ensure Binghamton's incredibly talented faculty have the necessary tools — equipment, lab space, grant seed money — to conduct groundbreaking research.
With your help, we can exceed our $95 million goal. Every gift to your alma mater not only sustains the great public education that contributed so much to your life, but builds an even stronger learning environment that will make Binghamton University alumni even prouder.
