Foundation for the Future Campaign

Summer 2022 Campaign Announcements

Thanks to the generous giving of German Club alumni, family, and friends, we exceeded our minimum goal of $2.0 million for the Foundation for the Future Endowment Campaign.  The campaign officially concluded on June 30, 2022, and we grossed $3.6 million in donations and pledges with nearly $2.3 million in actual donations received.  Nearly 30% of German Club alumni donated during the campaign, resulting in an endowment increase of nearly 80% and a guaranteed income increase from our endowment of almost 50%.

We celebrate the success of the Foundation for the Future Campaign and its conclusion. However, the need to raise funds annually to support the operations of the GCAF does not end. With an increased endowment, we have reduced the burden on annual giving to fund GCAF operations, but we have not eliminated it.
