For Eastern to reach its philanthropic goals, it will need to build a significantly larger base of Annual Fund donors in the coming years. President Elsa M. Núñez has reinforced this message with our alumni by reminding them that each gift from an Eastern graduate increases the value of an Eastern degree while helping to ensure the success of today’s students. Our alumni are listening — in FY2007, alumni participation increased 20 percent. Our endowment topped the $10 million mark for the first time. This is especially important since it creates endowment income sufficient to have a meaningful impact on the well-being of our students. We also saw a new set of fresh faces on our Foundation and Alumni Boards, people who bring their personal commitment and new ideas to the table. To our current donors, we share a heartfelt ‘thank you!” To those who are considering joining the University’s growing list of supporters, please review your options by browsing the web pages of the Office of Development. Thank you.
