CONCORD UNIVERSITY DAY OF GIVING CAMPAIGN EXCEEDS GOAL
ATHENS, W.Va. – With the generous support of donors, the 2019 Concord University Day of Giving not only met, but exceeded its goal. The campaign, earmarked for the Concord University Foundation’s Annual Fund, focused on raising $24,000 in 24 hours, and ran from 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 27.
The CU Annual Fund supports scholarships, campus improvements and other University related projects.
“The Concord University Annual Fund is essential to the future development of Concord University and both current and future students,” stated Blake Farmer, Manager of University Advancement.
“We are so grateful for the faculty, staff, alumni, and local community who supported this fundraising effort. Concord University’s Day of Giving exceeded the $24,000 goal in 24 hours and that is thanks to the generosity of the Mountain Lion community,” he said.
With several years of state budget cuts, fundraising is more important than ever for schools like Concord University. Farmer spearheaded this fundraising effort and enlisted students to assist in contacting donors. The University wanted a Day of Giving that anyone could participate in and that allowed the entire Mountain Lion community to come together in an atmosphere of “paying it back” to the university that provided so many of its donors with the foundation for becoming successful alumni.
