April 3, 2007– The Board of Directors of the Baruch College Alumni Association announced a pledge of $100,000 to support the Baruch College Fund’s Class Act campaign.
The Class Act campaign is designed to help provide access and opportunity to Baruch College’ 15,700 students. These unrestricted gifts support scholarships, student career services, student activities and other programs, as well as the William and Anita Newman Library and faculty research. In return, benefactors are given the opportunity to name a classroom or other space at Baruch’s 17-floor, award-winning William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus and the Information and Technology Building. The naming provides a legacy for benefactors of the College and an example of achievement for Baruch’s students.
For over 38 years, the members of the Baruch College Alumni Association have been partners in supporting the students, faculty and alumni of Baruch College. Edith W. Mackey, President of the Baruch College Alumni Association said, “On behalf of our dedicated Board of Directors, volunteers and members, we are delighted to have this additional opportunity to further a distinguished legacy of alumni giving. One of the many rewards of a Baruch education is knowing how important it is to give back and make a difference whenever possible. I hope that this gift will inspire many more to join us.”
