Wyoming Catholic College announced in a press release that a recent development campaign exceeded its fundraising goal, placing the College in a strong position at the beginning of the new year.
From October through December 2013, the College ran a capital campaign entitled "Igniting the Fire." The campaign exceeded its goal of matching initial contributions of $500,000 by raising a total of more than $1,500,000 from benefactors.
The College reports:
Upon assuming office as the new president of Wyoming Catholic College earlier this year, Dr. Kevin Roberts expressed his great excitement for the task ahead, exhorting his listeners to "harness the holy audacity that this College has always represented, and fuel it with the holy zeal that only God’s apostles can possess. ...Our mission, therefore, is nothing less than following the words of St. Ignatius of Loyola: 'Go forth and set the world on fire!'”
Today, Wyoming Catholic College is pleased to announce that this “Igniting the Fire” campaign has been a resounding success, exceeding its goal by over 50%. During the past three months, donors have contributed over $1,500,000, allowing the College to begin the New Year with the holy zeal that comes from knowing that many people believe in its mission and are eager to support it.
“We are exceptionally grateful to our many friends," said Dr. Roberts, "and for all who continue to believe so very strongly in the importance of Wyoming Catholic College and in our mission of forming young men and women as exceptional leaders—through our rigorous and integrated academic program, our Outdoor Leadership and Horsemanship Programs, and our supportive community and spiritual life. Together, we are ‘Igniting the Fire’ for a new generation—as we school the whole person in all three dimensions—body, mind, and spirit.”
Wyoming Catholic College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
