Mid-Campaign Update

The goal of $75 million dollars for Graceland's students is a big number! And we're well on our way to reaching it with 98% already committed.

Everyone can be a part of this fund drive through participation in the Annual Fund drive, the Phonathons, Yellowjacket Club membership, special projects and any area of the donor's interest.

The Board of Trustees are personally offering a 1:1 matching challenge this school year for the first $250,000 new or increased unrestricted or general scholarship gifts. Give your annual gift before May 31 for your gift to qualify for the match.

We track numbers to evaluate success, but the true success happens in the lives of the students who are impacted by the generosity of those who walked "the Hill" before them. Thank you to the 6,624 families who have already made your commitment to strength Graceland's future. It takes us all to make Graceland a really Great University.

We invite you to join us in the most ambitious goal the institution has ever set . . . $75,000,000!!
