Foundation for the Future Campaign

Spring 2021 Campaign Announcements

Thanks to the generous giving of German Club alumni, family, and friends, we are now approaching our minimum goal of $2.0 million for the Foundation for the Future Endowment Campaign.  In the final sprint during the last year of the campaign and heading towards the 130th Anniversary of the German Club in April of 2022, we are optimistic that we can significantly eclipse the goal.

To help us exceed our goal, we have been challenged by two generous alumni.  One alumnus is offering to match $1 for every $2 donated from now until the end of the campaign in April 2022.  He has capped his match at $150,000 with $300,000 from others.  Separately, another generous alumnus is offering to match $1 for $1 donated up to $50,000.  These challenges could help us raise $650,000.  

Let’s meet these challenges!

As a reminder, you can make your gift permanent by contributing a total of $2500 during the campaign.  Read more on the Paver Program page of this website.
