In October, we were given an extraordinary challenge – to raise $7 million in cash and pledges by December 31 – to ensure that The College of New Rochelle would remain open for the full academic year. The amazing generosity of our alumnae/i and friends and their hard work and commitment have allowed us to address our immediate financial crisis. We have not only achieved our milestone goals but exceeded them, raising $7.5 million to date for the WeAreCNR campaign! Thank you so much.
While we begin planning for the future, a new fundraising effort is required to meet the needs of our students and to further strengthen The College of New Rochelle. One of the College’s largest operating expenses continues to be scholarships.
Our students, many of modest means, value and appreciate the financial aid they receive which enables them to stay enrolled and not take on more than one job to fund and complete their studies. The need for these funds always extends beyond the resources available for scholarships. Please be assured that your support is vital to every CNR student. You provide a way forward for them, just as many of you have provided a way forward for The College of New Rochelle during a very challenging time.
Please give now, give again if you can, or make a pledge to be paid by June 30. Every gift matters, and every gift is put to use right away assisting students.
Thank you again for answering the call when it was most needed. Please continue to support CNR so that the excellent education provided here will be available to students for many years to come.
