Ever Successful

Mary Baldwin College ended the fiscal year exceeding its $1.65 million goal for the 2013 Baldwin Fund, the institution’s annual fundraising effort and part of its larger fundraising initiative, Ever Ahead: The Campaign for Mary Baldwin College. The MBC Office of Institutional Advancement raised nearly $1.7 million through June 30 by employing a variety of efforts, including a one-to-one matching challenge, a social media campaign, and a unique video at the end of the fiscal year.
