UCA Launches Public Phase of $100M Campaign

1 min read

The University of Central Arkansas in Conway has launched the public phase of the largest fundraising effort in its history.

The goal of the comprehensive, eight-year capital campaign, called “UCA Now: Impact Arkansas and Beyond,” is to raise $100 million from at least 15,000 donors. The campaign began its quiet phase in July 2016 and will conclude in July 2024.

Already, $72.5 million has been raised. That total includes a surprise $3 million estate gift from longtime UCA supporters Rush and Linda Harding, who are also serving as campaign co-chairs this year.

UCA President Houston Davis said in a news release, “This $100 million campaign again raises the bar for our university and places UCA in special company relative to peers. Breaking through the ceiling of $100 million announces that our students, faculty, staff and alumni belong in this select company in American public education.

“I am excited about the future of this university. Our time is now.”
