CINCINNATI -- The University of Cincinnati Foundation has accepted an invitation to join the esteemed CASE 50 Community of Interest initiative program.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) 50 Community of Interest initiative is comprised of universities across the nation with top-performing fundraising programs and advocacy programs. UC is now among an elite community with other CASE 50 members such as Yale, Havard, Stanford, Cornell and University of Florida.
To be invited to the program, an institution must meet a specific criteria that includes raising over $100 million a year, for at least three years, or to have completed a campaign of more than $1 billion.
UC's Proudly Cincinnati program has now set the stage for future endeavors for the community as a whole.
“It is an honor to be named among such revered universities,” said Rod Grabowski, president of the UC Foundation. “Private support has transformed UC into a world-class institution, and it is thanks to our committed and generous network of alumni and donors that UC is receiving this recognition.”
The newly-formed CASE 50 Community of Interest will develop programs, conduct research and design services tailored to the special requirements of major advancement programs.
The CASE 50 community also provides leadership, advocacy and policy development for fundraising in higher education.
