Brockport to Launch $25 Million Fundraising Campaign Friday

Comprehensive campaign is the largest in College’s history

BROCKPORT, NY—The College at Brockport, State University of New York, will formally embark on a key journey Friday, April 26, as it launches the largest fundraising campaign in its 177-year history.

Brockport President John R. Halstead, PhD, will join Brockport Vice President for Advancement Roxanne Johnston and members of The Brockport Foundation in launching Pursue Something Greater, The Campaign for Brockport—a crucial $25 million fundraising effort that will propel the College into its future. The campaign, which has already raised more than $16 million during its initial leadership phase, will kick off during a 6:30 pm ceremony in the Seymour College Union ballroom.

The campaign will support four key areas: student support (scholarships and funds that support key experiential learning opportunities such as internships, research opportunities, study abroad, etc), support for faculty, schools and programs (endowed positions, funds for faculty research, travel and equipment), campus and facilities enhancements (classroom technology, building furnishings, etc), and the Fund for Brockport (unrestricted dollars that can be used at the discretion of College leadership).

Friday’s ceremony will include remarks from Halstead and other campaign officials, videos about the Brockport experience and a dance performance.
