Solicitation of Funds

Berea conducts an extensive and continuous program of fund-raising. To maintain the coherence and effectiveness of these efforts, all fund-raising activities are centralized and coordinated in the Office of the Vice President for Alumni and College Relations. This is done to prevent an awkward situation in which two college representatives, unknown to each other, approach the same individual, foundation, or other donor and, in effect, begin to compete for a gift.

The development effort seeks to take full advantage of the ideas and contacts of faculty members. Suggestions are welcome and active participation in useful ways encouraged. Faculty are strongly urged, however, not to approach potential donors or engage in other fund-raising activities without first conferring with appropriate persons in the College Relation’s Office.
