E&H Fundraising Recognized Nationally

Posted on: Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013 by Brent Treash

Emory & Henry College has been recognized by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education for outstanding fundraising during the last three years.

Emory & Henry was honored with the 2013 CASE Educational Fundraising Award, which recognizes “superior fundraising programs” at educational institutions across the country. Emory & Henry was recognized for overall development performance in fiscal years ending in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Earlier in the year, CASE also recognized the College for achievement in garnering support for its annual fund, which hit record highs in 2011 and 2012.

During the three years under consideration, the E&H Institutional Advancement staff raised approximately $18.2 million. In that time, the annual fund grew dramatically, reaching a record $642,000 in 2011 and growing again to $764,000 in 2012.

Emory & Henry College was selected to receive an Overall Performance Award based on judges’ analysis of fundraising data provided by the institution. According to CASE, Emory & Henry was “one of an exceptional group of colleges, universities and independent schools recognized either for overall performance or overall improvement in fundraising.”

In acknowledging the award, E&H President Rosalind Reichard praised the E&H advancement office and the College’s supporters. “This award and the fundraising success it recognizes is a testimony to the passionate, dedicated employees of the E&H Office of Institutional Advancement and to the many alumni and friends of Emory & Henry who value the College’s mission and the impact it has on students and communities,” Reichard said.

Educational Fundraising Award recipients are evaluated in appropriate peer groups by a volunteer panel of judges. When reviewing data profiles, the judging panel does not know the name of the institution tied to the data.
