Re: List of Infrastructure Improvements: Fundraising Campaign -$100 mill to date-

I agree, we do not have the number of multi or mega millionaires we need to create the lead and secondary gifts for large projects. I tried to make this case a few years back and suggested this campaign contain only projects costing no more than about $10 million. Instead of building a new library, ...

Re: List of Infrastructure Improvements: Fundraising Campaign -$100 mill to date-

Actually up until two years ago Mickeys operated a fast food restaurant that sold baseball park food called “ Hey Getcha Hot Dog!” We had the works: Nathan’s hot dogs, beer, peanuts, fries, pizza rolls, etc …it’s was a cardiologist’s delight. We ran it for about 15 years but Covid and the labor shor...

Re: List of Infrastructure Improvements: Fundraising Campaign -$100 mill to date-

I have no idea. Like I said it was on the list in 2019 and referred to as the Power Center which along with an addition to the Golisano Center would lead to the library and DePaul Hall being demolished making way for a parking lot. At the time I questioned it’s location and was told nothing was fina...

Re: List of Infrastructure Improvements: Fundraising Campaign -$100 mill to date-

That was in the 2019 plan but is it still in the plan today? I also don’t understand why you would want to place an academic building like a new new library at the far end of the campus away from all the other academic buildings. We are in upstate NY not Boca Raton, it’s cold, windy and damp and som...

Re: Detailed List of Infrastructure Improvements: Fundraising Campaign -$100 mill to date-

Le, in 2007 at the start of the public phase of the last campaign the university came out with a future plan as well and very little is included in the current near term plan. I suspect it will change again, it’s already different than the plan put forth at a semi public unveiling of the campaign in...

Re: No where to go but up/ AHA Preseason Coaches' Poll

It’s been about ten years since we have had much to get excited about either on the court or the ice. It would be great to have a positive surprise!

Re: SBU announces their fund raising campaign

I agree. We need to become more competitive. We need to attract students from all social and financial backgrounds We can’t just be the Walmart of universities, “low prices every day”. We have to appeal to the Lord and Taylor or Saks customer as well. Me, I’m not a Saks guy but depending on what I’m...

Re: SBU announces their fund raising campaign

Every school has contributors who are not alumni including Niagara but the little I know about fund raising says you go after your small donors last not in the silent phase of a campaign. If they are at $75 million after already reaching out to these donors where do they go to find the next $50 mill...

Re: SBU announces their fund raising campaign

I understand the totally redesigned Kiernan Center looks great but I haven’t heard or seen anything from the university about it. Now my reading comprehension has never been good but the St Bonaventure release says they had almost 50,000 contributors give gifts of under $5000. First, over the past 7...
