Central College recently finished the second phase of a record-breaking, multi-year fundraising campaign aimed at improving the college through investments in people and projects. The “Campaign for Central” began with Phase I in July of 1999 and raised $52.5 million in six years for scholarships, endowed faculty chairs and improvements in the college’s programs.

Phase II of the campaign raised another $36.8 million for capital projects, such as the newly completed Roe Center, and ended June 30th of this year. In all, the 11-year campaign raised a record-breaking $89.4 million, exceeding the original goal by nearly $3.5 million.
