Hendrix College has secured nearly $146 million in gifts and pledges toward its $150 million fundraising goal for “A Time to Lead: The Campaign for Today and Tomorrow.”
The college’s recent fundraising success includes $33 million raised in the past 14 months.
The campaign was announced in November 2020, when Hendrix received a $15 million gift from the Windgate Foundation, the largest outright gift in the college’s history. The Windgate gift allowed Hendrix to expand its goal from $110 million to $150 million.
In addition, among the college’s recent projects are the renovation of historic Martin and Veasey Halls. Both are expected to reopen this fall.
The Residence Hall Renewal Project could be funded in part by a $2 million challenge grant from the Mabee Foundation that the college received last spring. Hendrix has raised nearly $9.1 million toward its $9.2 million match. It must raise the remaining $113,102 by April.
