Bates College’s monthly newsletter for its fundraising volunteers.
The New Year
Happy New Year! With the start of 2011, we have great news to report on the Bates Fund’s progress through 12/31/10. Commitments for the Alumni Fund stand 5% ahead of last year at this time and commitments for the Parents Fund stand 19% ahead! This is tremendous progress and we look forward to collaborating with you to continue the forward momentum in the new year.
The Bates Fund Executive Committee met in Boston on January 8 for a day of planning. Acting Director of Admission Leigh Weisenburger joined the group for lunch to give an insider’s look at admissions today. Weisenburger reported that applicants for admission in fall 2011 are up 10% over last year. Weisenburger also discussed the “swing dean” program and its effective role in recruiting and retaining Multi-Cultural students. Read an article about this program by clicking here.
