Commission to Plan for the Future of University Development

After years of hard work, the Campaign for Fresno State will conclude in 2012, achieving the ambitious goal of $200 million. Congratulations and gratitude are due all whose leadership, generous contributions of time, talent and treasure, and determined efforts made possible the largest fundraising endeavor since Fresno State's founding in 1911

And then what happens? How will the University maintain fund-raising momentum? How will it re-focus and re-tool the advancement program for success in a non-campaign mode?

In early 2011, President John D. Welty invested a Commission with the charge of contemplating and recommending a five-year future for the Advancement enterprise at Fresno State. The Commission, reporting directly to President Welty, was responsible for gathering input, discussing issues and opportunities, seeking research and counsel, and making written recommendations for his consideration.

The Commission recently completed its work and now presents this report for your information.
