Northwestern helps Kellogg achieve its objectives
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
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.
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.
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.
