Meredith College to Announce Beyond Strong Campaign Grand Total

President Jo Allen, ʼ80, will announce the final Beyond Strong│The Campaign for Meredith grand total on Founders’ Day February 27.

The Campaign began in 2012 and on February 26, 2016, Meredith College announced the $75 million goal in front of faculty, staff, alumnae, and students at the Founders’ Day celebration. At that point, the College had already raised $52 million surpassing the last campaign grand total by $11 million.

Beyond Strong has created incredible opportunities for students and the entire campus community. In our largest fundraising effort in the history of Meredith College, gifts have supported scholarships, new academic programs, facilities, study abroad opportunities, StrongPoints®, Wings, the endowment, enhanced faculty and staff development, wellness programs, the Going Strong brand launch, new campus signage, and so much more.

Parents have contributed more than $3 million to the Campaign, with a portion going to The Parents Fund. Those gifts have supported projects such as improved campus lighting and study spaces, expanded fitness center operations, and a redesigned security system at the front gate.
