Dubuque, IA- Loras College is kicking off a campaign to raise seventy-five million dollars. The campaign, called Inspiring Lives and Leadership, is centered around building the endowment fund for students, faculty, and programs. The campaign kicked off this Thursday — with an event featuring several keynote speakers, a press conference, and mass at the grotto.
Though the campaign officially launched this week, the college has been rasing money since June of two-thousand-and-ten— raising almost forty-four million dollars so far. But Vice President for Institutional Advancement Mike Doyle says the climb is far from over. “It’s a massive operation,” Doyle says, “but one that’s important to ensure Loras is around for another 175 years.”
The overall goal of seventy-five million dollars is expected to be raised within the next three years.
