Thanks to 8,606 donors, Knox College exceeded fundraising expectations for the 2011-12 fiscal year (July 1, 2011-June 30, 2012) by raising more cash from more donors in the midst of a continuing difficult economic climate.
When all the gifts and estates from alumni, parents, friends, and private organizations were tallied, $9.9 million was donated to support Knox faculty and students, the College's educational mission, and its annual operations. The total includes an additional $1.49 million more from living donors than last year.
The Knox Fund, or gifts that support the annual operations of the College, exceeded last year's total of $2.98 million -- by more than $132,000, totaling $3,108,684 in gifts.
For the first time in three years, Knox saw an increase in the number of individuals who made donations to the College, including alumni. The College received gifts from 8,606 donors, including 4,850 alumni.
