Hendrix continues to chart progress toward its goal of raising $100 million by 2010, when A Commitment to National Leadership: The Hendrix Campaign is scheduled to end. By mid-April 2008, the College had raised more than $76 million in gifts and pledges toward its overall goal. That amount includes:
• $12.9 million toward construction of a new Student Life and Technology Center.
• $5.75 million toward Odyssey Professorships
• $1 million toward the Odyssey Endowment
• $1.7 million toward the current Annual Fund goal
The leadership of the campaign cabinet, chaired by R. Madison and Suzanne Nodini Murphy, both ’80, and Dan ’80 and Jennifer Jacuzzi Peregrin ’81, has been critical to the current success of the campaign, as has the support of the Hendrix Trustees.
For the rest of 2008, efforts will focus on raising the remaining funds necessary to complete the Student Life and Technology Center. This goal must be reached by the end of the year to qualify for a $1.5 million challenge grant from the Mabee Foundation.
