University of Arkansas at Little Rock officials brought the institution's first ever comprehensive fundraising campaign to a close, announcing a final tally of $103.6 million in gifts and pledges.
"The energy surrounding the announcement of UALR's first-ever comprehensive campaign was unparalleled in the history of the university," said campaign chair Haskell Dickinson. "The campaign reflects the enthusiasm and vision that will catapult Arkansas into a new era of economic growth."
A total of 18,605 donors participated in the campaign. The Office of Development processed a total of 103,306 gifts and pledges, 85 percent of which are already realized.
The original campaign goal of $75 million was achieved 18 months early. Buoyed by the early success, campaign leaders pressed ahead by raising the goal to $100 million, which was surpassed earlier in 2012
"The stage is now set," said Chancellor Joel E. Anderson. "We now have more donors and prospects engaged at the end of the campaign than the beginning or mid point, and we have built a philanthropic culture to serve the campus well into the future.
