Campaign Destiny enters the second half
by Dalene Abner, ISU Foundation
The record-setting Campaign Destiny: To Become the Best, is progressing at record speed. At the end of December 1997 -- halfway through the five-year campaign -- contributions were an estimated $224 million, three-fourths of the $300-million goal.
The $10 million campaign for university employees and retirees ended the year at almost $8.7 million.
"In the most basic terms of financial support, this campaign shows how alumni and friends believe in helping Iowa State become the best," said ISU Foundation President Tom Mitchell. "Campaign Destiny's record pace is very strong evidence of our progress toward that goal."
Since the campaign was launched in September 1996, campaign goals for these 15 projects have been reached:
- College of Agriculture major endowment
- Palmer Human Development and Family Studies building
- Chemistry lab renovation
- Music Recital Hall renovation
- Seed Science Center addition
- Intensive livestock building
- Stanley and Helen Howe Hall (phase one of the Engineering Teaching and Research Complex)
- Press tower and skyboxes at the stadium
- Jack Trice Stadium turf
- Botany greenhouse renovation
- Chemistry instrumentation endowment
- Restoration of Christian Petersen's mural and the bronze reproduction of his Gentle Doctor statue at Veterinary Medicine
- Replica of the Atanasoff-Berry Computer
- General scholarships
- Student-athlete scholarships.
Priorities for the campaign in 1998 include the President's Scholarship Campaign, phase two of ETRC, a new building for a Global Center for Agricultural and Rural Development, an addition to the Design Center, a business entrepreneurship initiative that would include a variety of activities to promote entrepreneurship in ISU classrooms and throughout the state, and conservation work on the historic Farm House.
