The Comprehensive Campaign:  Leveraging Public & Private Partnerships for Successful Fundraising
Presented at the 43rd annual ACCT (Association of Community College Trustees) Leadership Congress, held in Boston, Massachusetts October 10-13

Learn how one community college bucked the odds in a bad economy in a region replete with well-established 4 year universities involved in billion dollar campaigns, by leveraging comprehensive partnerships to effectively compete for public and private funds in the most significant fundraising program in its 46 year history. The original goal of the comprehensive campaign of $30 million was reached prior to the public launch. Those attending the session should be able to: 

 

  1. Recognize the fundamental differences and challenges presented by a comprehensive campaign
  2. Prepare your college for a comprehensive campaign by leveraging existing partnerships and identifying and creating new, effective alliances
  3. Define and implement the critical roles trustees, presidents, staff members and external stakeholder/partners will play in the campaign
  4. Leverage partnerships to effectively increase fundraising in the public and private sectors 

 


Imagine & Achieve: The Campaign for the Community College of Allegheny County
Thanks to the generosity of many donors, Imagine and Achieve: The Campaign for the Community College of Allegheny County exceeded its initial $30 million goal and has now embarked on raising an additional $10 million dollars, bringing the total fundraising goal to $40 million.

From the construction of the building to the internal “green” operating systems and state-of-the-art science equipment, the K. Leroy Irvis Science Center will stand as a testament to the marvels and possibilities of science. The science and technology labs will incorporate the most advanced technology available, with five floors providing cutting-edge teaching tools and equipment to students and faculty alike.

Updated equipment such as sophisticated spectrophotometers, spectroscopes, polarimeters, osmometers, incubators, centrifuges, sterilizers and microscopes will be standard education tools used by CCAC students and instructors. At CCAC, the legacy of innovation continues.
