$300 Million and Counting!

On January 18, 2011—the 150th anniversary to the day of Vassar’s founding—the college publicly announced an ambitious fundraising effort: the Vassar 150: World Changing campaign.

Three priorities are the focus of the effort—ongoing support for Vassar’s Annual Fund; construction of an Integrated Science Center to support Vassar’s cutting-edge, multidisciplinary curricula; and scholarships to ensure that talented students have access to a Vassar education regardless of their means.

These priorities have resonated strongly with the Vassar family … alumnae/i, parents, friends of the college. As of year-end 2011, Vassar’s fundraising total surpassed $300 million, a major milestone. With the campaign scheduled to come to an end in 2013, the college is more than 75 percent of the way toward its goal. But to reach it, the college needs your continued support.
