500 for 500
The Cambridge College Alumni Relations Office has thrown out a challenge to its 35,000+ alumni around the globe! As you know, the College has sold its 1000 Massachusetts Ave campus in Cambridge and is moving across the Charles River to 500 Rutherford Avenue located at the heart of Boston’s historic Hood Park located in Charlestown. The new state of the art facility will provide greater access and amenities to its broadly diverse student population, including flexible classrooms, smart technology that supports both on-site teaching and student learning needs, collaborative meeting and gathering spaces, modern student-focused amenities, and a bookstore, to name a few.
The challenge for alumni is to offer the College a “housewarming” gift, or rather, 500 gifts to be exact! Between March 1 and August 31, 2017, we are asking at least 500 alumni to make a gift to the College’s Annual Fund 2017. Any amount is welcome because our goal is 500 gifts for 500 Rutherford. Ambitious? Absolutely, but we know our alumni can do it! We met the “45 for 45 Challenge” in 2016 raising over $4500, and we can make the “500 for 500 Challenge” one for the College record books!
Cambridge College’s promise depends on the ongoing support of people like you. You can make a difference. Every gift – large or small– is important in helping the College provide higher education for a diverse population of working adults. Gifts to Cambridge College provide for program and faculty development, academic technology, student support services, and scholarships. There are many ways you can help enhance the financial stability of Cambridge College for future generations.
