The Vision and the Promise Update - January 2014


As we enter into the final year of our historic, $10 million campaign The Vision and the Promise. Here’s a closer look at what your generous contributions have enabled us to achieve so far:

52: The percentage of faculty and staff members who have participated in the campaign

16: The total number of new scholarships that have been established

5: The number of endowed scholarships, pledged or established, from faculty and administrators.

1: The single largest gift from an alumnus in the history of the College

Over the course of the first four years of the campaign, the Optometric Center of New York has raised more funds for scholarships, research and community health care projects than any other four year period in its history.

But, with the campaign now in the home stretch, we need your help more than ever in order to reach our goal.
