CCBC awarded CASE Ed­u­ca­tional Fundrais­ing Award

The Avenue News - - NEWS -

Com­mu­nity Col­lege of Bal­ti­more County has been rec­og­nized by the Coun­cil for Ad­vance­ment and Sup­port of Ed­u­ca­tion (CASE) for its fundrais­ing ef­forts with the 2019 CASE Ed­u­ca­tional Fundrais­ing Award. Ninety col­leges, uni­ver­si­ties and in­de­pen­dent schools from across the coun­try re­ceived this award.

CCBC was se­lected to re­ceive the award based on the judges’ anal­y­sis of three years of fundrais­ing data con­sid­er­ing such fac­tors as solid pro­gram growth, breath of sup­port and other indi­ca­tions of a ma­ture, well­main­tained pro­gram. Each in­sti­tu­tion demon­strated the high­est lev­els of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and best prac­tice in its fundrais­ing ef­forts.

In 2017, CCBC com­pleted its first ma­jor cap­i­tal cam­paign, New Begin­nings, which raised nearly $57. 3 mil­lion from 10,364 donors. The cam­paign sup­ported the ren­o­va­tions of the Hil­ton Cen­ter at CCBC Ca­tonsville, along with the Cen­ter for Global Ed­u­ca­tion En­dow­ment, schol­ar­ships for stu­dents, in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy in the class­room and fac­ulty and staff de­vel­op­ment. With an orig­i­nal cam­paign goal of $42 mil­lion, New Begin­nings turned into a record­set­ting $57.3 mil­lion suc­cess­ful cam­paign, set­ting a new stan­dard of giv­ing at CCBC.

“We are hon­ored to re­ceive this recog­ni­tion be­cause it rep­re­sents the ef­forts of ded­i­cated staff who worked tire­lessly to cre­ate a “cul­ture of giv­ing” at CCBC, said CCBC’s Vice Pres­i­dent of In­sti­tu­tional Ad­vance­ment Ken Wes­tary. “CCBC has been strength­en­ing its fundrais­ing ca­pac­ity for sev­eral years, through bet­ter stew­ard­ship, donor en­gage­ment, and the de­vel­op­ment of out­stand­ing ini­tia­tives, all cre­ated to ad­vance CCBC’s mis­sion. I guess you can say the NB Cam­paign was a cul­mi­na­tion of ev­ery­thing we worked to­wards as an in­sti­tu­tion.”
