Campaign Northwestern helps Kellogg achieve its objectives

Campaign Northwestern achieved its original fundraising goal of $1 billion in December. This remarkable total brings significant new resources to both the university and to Kellogg. The campaign is moving ahead towards its new goal of $1.4 billion, and Kellogg is actively soliciting support from its alumni and friends.

The most ambitious aspect of Kellogg's campaign is the naming of the Donald P. Jacobs Center, the three buildings that comprise the full-time campus in Evanston. The Jacobs Center received a terrific start from two involved alumni, Joseph Levy Jr. and Patrick G. Ryan. With their lead gifts, the fundraising began in earnest, and we have received support from all segments of the Kellogg family.

Kellogg Advisory Board members have provided many leading gifts and our response from alumni has also been strong. Our new phon-a-thon program has put us in touch with many long-lost alumni who have pledged their financial support to the Jacobs Center to honor Dean Jacobs for his years of service. "This is a wonderful opportunity for all members of the Kellogg community and friends of Dean Jacobs to contribute to an important aspect of Kellogg and to celebrate the dean's outstanding dedication to Kellogg and Northwestern," said Liz Livingston Howard '93, assistant dean for development.

Kellogg is soliciting gifts for other areas of the school, including academic excellence through endowed professorships and academic research center projects; information technology through the Kellogg Alumni Advisory Board/ Donald P. Jacobs Chair in Information Technology; facilities in naming opportunities in the new building and the current facilities in Evanston and Chicago; and globalization with our international alliance programs.

Gifts to Campaign Northwestern Kellogg and the Donald P. Jacobs Center may be directed to the Development Office, 2001 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208-2001, or call 847.491.2841 for more information.
