• The 2012 Flagler College Alumni Weekend hosted a 40th Reunion of the Class of 1972, the first class to graduate from Flagler College. They were joined by members of the Charter Classes of 1973, 1974 and 1975. • More than $13.2 million has been raised since 2010 toward “Focused on the Future, the Campaign for Flagler College.” Now in its third year, efforts will continue over the next several years to raise funds for projected needs of the College, including endowment, capital projects and annual giving. The Annual Fund will be an important component with rebranding underway to launch the Flagler Fund for unrestricted support.
• The College has received a grant of $350,000 from the State of Florida to assist with restoration of the Solarium in Ponce Hall. This grant supports the initial $500,000 challenge grant made by Allen and Delores Lastinger. The total raised to date is $1,977,184. Naming opportunities still remain.
• The late Patricia T. Blanchard, ‘79, made a bequest to her alma mater through a planned gift, which provides a flexible way for alumni, parents and friends to provide support for the College in the future while realizing benefits for themselves today. Bequests are simple and easy and can be for an outright amount or a percentage of a retirement plan.Tagged As
