Hendrix College in Conway raised $22 million in new gifts and pledges this year for its $150 million campaign called “A Time to Lead,” bringing the total raised for the campaign to $133 million.
This past fiscal year was the second-most successful fundraising year in the college’s history. Hendrix has now surpassed its original $110 million campaign goal a year ahead of schedule.
In November, the college received a $15 million gift from the Windgate Foundation, the largest outright gift in its history. The campaign was subsequently expanded to $150 million and extended to 2023.
Hendrix has also increased its campaign goal for endowed gifts from $60 million to $84 million. The current value of its endowment, $238 million as of May 31, is the highest in the college’s history.
