Guess what? We did it again!
Last year our President's Associates community celebrated a record-breaking year, and this year was no different. In fiscal year 2013-14, our President's Associates family climbed to 801 individuals. Within our ranks are more than 375 alumni, 214 parents, 59 faculty and staff members, and 8 students. We live in 37 states and 7 countries. We are community comprised of generous, visionary, nurturing, dedicated souls who said "yes" to Ithaca College students.
We provide the bulk of support for Ithaca College -- from the Annual Fund to scholarships, awards, and special programs and projects. We make IC tick, and we have so much to be proud of!
David and I hope you take the opportunity to browse this year's Report on Giving and see what your generosity has accomplished at Ithaca College. You will be astounded. We're always so impressed when we have the opportunity to meet Ithaca College students, and the stories found in "It Happens Because of You" remind us why. Please take the time to get to know Danica, Sean, Sara, and the other students featured in this section.
We'd also like to point you to a new section of this report titled "Allow Us to Introduce . . . " Here, you'll find some short profiles of donors just like you -- who they are, where they work, how they're connected to IC, and, of course, why they give.
You'll find something else very special in this year's report: you. It's always a thrill to see your name listed on the donor roll, among so many others who have come together to support this institution.
Thank you, so much, for putting IC students high on your list of philanthropic priorities. You are such an important part of the life of the college -- and the lives of its students.
