The University Advancement Division at Cal Poly Pomona has received a 2015 CASE Educational Fundraising Award, an honor given to superior fundraising programs at academic institutions across the country.
University Advancement earned an Overall Performance Award, which was judged on analyses of three years of fundraising data. The award was announced May 22 by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
“This honor clearly underscores the dedication and commitment of the people who make students and learning opportunities their main focus each and every day,” said Michelle Stoddard, acting vice president for University Advancement. “I couldn’t ask for a better team of professionals.”
In 2014, Cal Poly Pomona concluded its highly successful Campaign for Cal Poly Pomona, which surpassed its $150 million target and brought in more than $160 million in donations, bequests and pledges — a record fundraising effort for the university.
“Cal Poly Pomona is one of an exceptional group of colleges, universities, and independent schools recognized either for overall performance or overall improvement in fundraising,” cited Brian Flahaven, director of CASE’s, Legislative, Foundation and Recognition Programs.
This is the first Educational Fundraising Award for Cal Poly Pomona.
CASE is an international association that advances and supports educational institutions by providing knowledge, standards, advocacy and training to strengthen alumni relations, communications, fundraising, marketing and professional relations.
