Bowdoin has been selected to receive the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) 2011 Educational Fundraising Award for Overall Performance. Bowdoin is one of only 24 institutions of higher education across the country to receive this annual award recognizing exemplary advancement initiatives and performance.
“To have this recognition is a wonderful testament to Bowdoin and its loyal alumni, parents and friends, who have supported the College for so long and so well,” says Senior Vice President for Planning and Development and Secretary of the College Bill Torrey.
Selection for the award is based on judges’ analysis of three years of fundraising data Bowdoin supplied to CASE’s annual Voluntary Support of Education Survey.
“Because your fundraising program was judged by a panel of your peers, this award is not only a recognition of its high value to your institution, but also an acknowledgement of its stature as a best practice that contributes to the advancement profession overall,” wrote Norma Walker, vice president of advancement programs for CASE.
This is the fifth time in seven years Bowdoin has received the Educational Fundraising Award for Overall Performance.
