Coastal Carolina University launches new $20 million endowment campaign
Coastal Carolina University recently launched a campaign that is strategically focused on eliminating financial barriers and helping the best and brightest students attend the university.
The goal of the campaign is to increase CCU’s endowment by $20 million by 2020, which would give the university approximately $800,000 in new funds annually to support student scholarships and academic excellence. More than $6.8 million of the $20 million goal has already been raised.
“Coastal Carolina University is experiencing remarkable progress,” said CCU President David A. DeCenzo. “Our record enrollment of 10,000-plus students is a testament to the commitment and hard work of our board of trustees, administration, faculty and staff. The I’M IN campaign will ensure that our positive trajectory continues well into the future.”
The campaign offers six endowment opportunities and funding levels, including student scholarships, academic programs, department professorships/chairs, naming opportunities, TEAL 1000 and Women in Leadership and Philanthropy.
