2019 Annual Alumni Gift
The spring semester is in full swing at Emmaus in spite of disruptive winter storms and bitter cold! Through it all, we see the Lord at work in the lives of our students, faculty, and staff. We are thankful for your continued prayers and support.
I am excited to share with you news about this year’s Annual Alumni Gift. As you know, the Annual Alumni Gift is a great tradition that allows Emmaus alumni to express their gratitude through a financial gift to the college. In recent years, the Annual Alumni Gift averages around $15,000. This past year, we raised funding toward the installation of additional air conditioning on campus, beginning with the David A. Glock Auditorium. As you can imagine, this is a major project! Funding for this project has been received and pledged, and we are awaiting a final estimate. We plan to bid the job and install the new air conditioning this year. A huge thank you to all who contributed!
For the 2019 gift we would like to raise support for the creation of a Second Floor Commons area located between the Harlow 2 and Smart 2 dormitories. This space would be a common area for men and women students to study and relax. It will provide another great place for community building and learning, and we are looking forward to accomplishing this project together. A very generous donor has provided matching funds for this year’s gift, so that every dollar raised by alumni will be matched. We would like to see alumni contribute $20,000 toward this project to allow for the timely and extensive renovation of this area. Contributions toward the Annual Alumni Gift will be taken from now through the end of May so that we can begin work on this project over the summer. Would you prayerfully consider participating with us in accomplishing our goals for the 2019 Alumni Annual Gift? You can contribute with the secure online form below.
Again, thank you for your continued prayer for, support of, and service to Emmaus Bible College!
