Kutztown University Foundation’s $40 million fundraising campaign more than 80% complete

A campaign to raise $40 million for scholarships and bolster students’ experiences at Kutztown University is well on its way to hitting its goal.

An event was held Saturday at Kutztown’s Schaeffer Auditorium to announce the launch of “Together, We’re Golden: The Campaign for Kutztown University.” The fundraising campaign is being undertaken by the Kutztown University Foundation, a fundraising and alumni relations partner to the university.

Although it was only made public Saturday, it appears the campaign is already a roaring success.

Officials from the foundation said that just over $33.7 of the campaign’s $40 million goal has already been raised, meaning the campaign has surpassed the 80% mark.

The funding from the campaign will serve three purposes: creating scholarships; bolstering emergency funds that provide grants to students at risk of dropping out; and enhancing student experiences through things like internships, research opportunities, student teaching and study abroad.

“Golden Bears have determination and dreams of making the world a better place,” Alex Ogeka, executive director of the Kutztown University Foundation, said in a statement announcing the campaign. “However, many students and potential students cannot afford to make those dreams a reality. Together, We’re golden will help ensure KU students earn their degrees and make their mark on the world.”

The campaign’s other goal, to engage with alumni and community members for a total of 40,000 hours, is even further along. So far, a total of 42,791 engagement hours have been reported.

As a result, another 10,000 engagement hours have been added to the goal.

“Strengthening our network of alumni and friends is crucial to the university’s future,” Ogeka said. “Engaged alumni and volunteers are a vital part of our culture of philanthropy.”
