Why Launch a Campaign Now?
Despite the current economic challenges on a national and international level, Cazenovia College leadership determined that we cannot afford to delay. The goals we have—for our curriculum, student access, recruitment and retention, faculty and staff development, and increased financial stability—are long-term goals, and the sooner we begin, the better.
What is the Campaign’s Financial Goal?
We expect to raise $10 million over the course of the campaign. A feasibility study was conducted in 2009-2010 which indicated that this would be a challenging, yet achievable goal based on the number of prospective donors we can contact over the course of a five-year campaign.
Besides raising money, are there any other benefits to such a large undertaking?
In addition to the $10 million goal, this initiative is intended to:
- Increase the percentage of alumni annually supporting Cazenovia College from 11% to 15% by 2015;
- Stimulate planned giving;
- Enhance corporate and foundation support;
- Identify and recruit new volunteer leadership; and,
- Raise the profile of the College in the local community and beyond.

Members of our campus community have these questions and many others. A more comprehensive list of these and other Frequently Asked Questions, with helpful information, can be found in this FAQ document (pdf).
We know that many of our dedicated employees are purchasing or providing items to benefit their work on campus without asking for reimbursement. Gifts of tangible property or services can be counted as a tax-deductible gift to the College and donors with an approved Gifts-in-Kind Form will be listed in the Annual Report of Gifts in that category.
