Praise God for His faithfulness! We thank you for your continued prayers and support of our Forward Campaign. As we have passed our halfway point, we are encouraged by the continued outpouring of generosity from our Cairn community. This investment in our mission and students reflects the support of our alumni, parents, friends, and campus community to honor Christ in fulfilling the mission of Cairn University.
As of January 30, our Forward Campaign total in gifts and pledges is $8,158,000. Below are our three areas of concentration with funds raised to date:
Scholarships (The Cairn Fund): $4M of our $3.6M goal
We continue to raise funds for scholarships and financial aid for our students. Through your continued support, we are able to provide aid for over 90% of our students.
Academic Programs: $726K of our $1.5M goal
Our new academic majors included in the campaign—Computer Science, Information Technology, Graphic Design, and Mathematics—were officially launched in the fall. We are continuing to raise funds to support these new programs.
Community Life Enhancements: $3.4M of our $9.9M goal
As part of the outreach to support the community life enhancements of the campaign, an event was held in honor of Pat and Beulah Stillman in late September 2017. As a result of the event, gifts and pledges given to date in honor of the Stillmans for the G. Patrick Stillman Athletic Complex are over $700,000, which includes 11 new and returning donors to the University. Please continue to pray as others are considering giving to the campaign in honor of the Stillman family.
We appreciate and look forward to God’s blessing on Cairn University through continued, generous gifts to the Forward Campaign.
You can be a part of this blessing by choosing to donate during Matching Gift Week, March 19–23. Give to the University during this week, and your gift will be doubled in an effort to reach our campaign goals.
