The Suzie and Grover Wrenn '64 Science Fellow Challenge
Campaign Chairman Grover Wrenn '64 and his wife, Suzie, issued a challenge to quadruple the impact of donors' new and increased Science Fellow gifts to the Center for Molecular and Life Science.
Eckerd Science Challenge
The Eckerd Science Challenge was made possible through an anonymous $15 million grant from a private foundation. It will match all gifts of any amount to the Center for Molecular and Life Sciences.
The Science Fellows
The Science Fellows is a group of College leaders who will provide the financial support for the Center for Molecular and Life Sciences, a facility that is critical to continuing the upward trajectory of Eckerd’s Science programs.
Eckerd College Friends of the Arts
Eckerd College Friends of the Arts is a donor-supported organization that informs and energizes audiences for the Arts at the College; strengthens the bonds between the College, the Tampa Bay community and Eckerd alumni around the globe; ignites passion in developing artists; and supports the College's efforts to provide superior opportunities for students to grow and learn in an environment of uncompromised artistic integrity and academic freedom.
The Kadel Society
The Kadel Society recognizes those who have made arrangements to include Eckerd College in their estate plans. Eckerd’s gift officers can work with you and your financial planner, attorney or other advisor to determine how best to structure your gift to take greatest advantage or tax breaks and estate planning guidelines, and ultimately realize your goals for supporting Eckerd College.
Dean's Council on Science
In 2009, Eckerd College formed the Dean’s Council on Science, a group of alumni, parents and friends of the College who represent various scientific fields and areas of the country. The Council advocates and is building support for Eckerd College’s Science programs, particularly the construction of the Center for Molecular and Life Sciences. The Council hosts an annual Eckerd College Science Symposium on campus, the second of which was held during Alumni Weekend 2010.
Class of 1968 Gift
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the College's founding as Florida Presbyterian College, the Class of 1968 made a fundraising effort that resulted in a generous class gift of nearly $500,000. The first significant class gift in the College’s history, the Class of '68 gift established an endowment in support of the academic program.
Sustaining Tomorrow's Leaders
As we move forward in these challenging economic times, Eckerd College seeks to raise funds for the newly created Sustaining Tomorrow's Leaders, a program to ensure that students suffering sudden economic hardship can receive the scholarship assistance they need to continue their Eckerd educations.
Each month through July 2010, two Science Profiles featuring Eckerd alumni, parents and friends who embody the College’s emphasis on Science will appear on the Eckerd Web site. This effort will help spotlight the No. 1 Campaign priority, the Center for Molecular and Life Sciences.
