The Campaign for Marist: $150 Million and Counting

 Dear Friends,

I’d like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the more than 14,000 alumni, parents, and friends who have participated to date in The Campaign for Marist. This impressive groundswell of support has enabled the College to meet and exceed its ambitious goal ahead of schedule — a feat that is the envy of many of Marist’s peers in higher education. The campaign is a resounding success because of the generosity of all of the members of the Marist community who have made supporting the College and ensuring its sound future a priority.

This fall marks the campaign’s final countdown, as the effort will officially draw to a close on December 31, 2012. Beginning in February 2013, the College will launch a series of celebrations across the country to mark the campaign’s unprecedented success. Each and every campaign donor will be invited to participate in what promises to be an incredibly uplifting celebration of the monumental impact the campaign has had across the institution and a fitting tribute to our dedicated supporters.

If you haven’t yet made a commitment to the campaign, I invite you to thoughtfully consider a gift or pledge now so the College can count you among the valued participants in this historic fundraising effort. Though our initial goal has been successfully met, there are a number of key institutional priorities with significant remaining need. The Marist Advancement team will be happy to assist you should you have an interest in discussing funding opportunities that are aligned with your interests.

When asked recently why I support The Campaign for Marist, I responded as I often do — because it genuinely feels good to give back. My great thanks again to all those who have already joined me by participating in The Campaign for Marist. To all who are contemplating the opportunity, I encourage you to make a gift or pledge before December 31, and be a part of this transformational time in the history of Marist College.

 Sincerely,

 Tim Brier signature
