Annual Report 2013-2014
GIVING TO MORAVIAN
Our theme for this past year was Moravian Proud, and we are proud to report that we had 3,961 alumni, parents and friends who made a gift to Moravian College this past year. This is an increase of more than 600 gifts from the previous year and is indicative of the confidence that donors have for the future of the College under the leadership of President Bryon L. Grigsby ’90.
The Moravian Scholarship Fund topped the $1 million mark for the first time in five years, with all of these gifts going directly to students in the form of financial aid. It cannot be emphasized enough how important these gifts are for the College to attract and retain high-achieving students.
Of course, any successful fundraising effort is dependent upon the consistent support of donors at every giving level, as well as those willing to make leadership gifts at the Comenius level and above. This past year, we added 74 members to the Consistent Giving Society, as well as an additional 24 members of the Comenius Society. Thank you to all of those individuals for their continued and increased support of the College.
The Campaign for Moravian: Pride. Passion.Opportunity. is entering the final year in a strong position having raised $41,135,761 in gifts and pledges toward our goal of $45 million. It is also encouraging that of this total in gifts and pledges, 96% of the amount has been received by the College to date. Those interested in making a multi-year pledge during the final year of the campaign will have up to five years to complete that pledge.
The Moravian Theological Seminary received 643 gifts totaling $386,882 this past year. We continue to be most appreciative of the Northern and Southern Provinces of the Moravian Church for their continued support of the Seminary.
Pride in Moravian College is not only alive and well, it is thriving due to the generosity of the donors listed on the following pages. It is only through your support that we are able to provide a quality education to deserving students. Thank you.
