During another tough economic year, Knox's donors -- alumni, parents, and friends -- donated more than $3 million for the Knox Fund last fiscal year (July 1, 2009-June 30, 2010). Gifts for the annual operations of the College totaled $3,033,449 against a goal of $2.85 million. This is the second largest amount ever donated to the Knox Fund, and the only time the College raised more than $3 million for the Knox Fund outside of a comprehensive campaign. Because of your generosity, total fundraising exceeded $10 million, nearly $4 million more than last year.
Knox Students Thank You
Of the more than $3 million Knox Fund dollars raised last year, $2.4 million provided financial aid and scholarships for Knox students.
What's so amazing about this result is that these gifts came from fewer donors, a trend that occurred at many institutions. After setting a record in alumni participation last year with 5,500 alumni donors, 4,900 alumni gave to Knox this year. Total donors were close to 9,000, compared to 9,400
Thank you to everyone who supported Knox last giving year. Your support makes a Knox education possible for today's students. You make Knox.
