Thank you, Ursuline Community, for your generous and enthusiastic support!
The Campaign for Ursuline: Act, Move, Believe has received new gifts of $8.5 million since the public launch of the campaign last September. These additional donations bring all gifts to date to nearly 75% of the total campaign goal of $85 million.
Increased giving has also been distinguished by remarkable levels of participation in these extraordinary times. Parent contributions in Fall 2020 rose by 88% over the prior year, with 85% of Ursuline families participating. Ursuline Employees achieved 100% participation for the sixth consecutive year, with a 127% increase in total gift amount. Alumnae stepped up to the challenge and responded by increasing their total giving by over 200%.
All contributions to the comprehensive campaign go to fund capital improvements, programs and operations, and endowment growth.
We are tremendously grateful to all our donors and to the many volunteers who are supporting the vision of The Campaign for Ursuline, to benefit all aspects of teaching and learning at the Academy.
Exciting progress is underway on the new East Campus construction, along with extensive renovations for Haggar Center on the West Campus. You can view weekly updates on fundraising and view construction progress on the Ursuline website.
