I’m pleased to present the 2013-2014 Franklin & Marshall Fund Mid-Year Investment Report.
Generous donations from alumni, parents and others within the F&M family help to create truly remarkable opportunities for our students, including groundbreaking work with our faculty and a broad range of activities in and outside the classroom.
As Chair of the Board of Trustees Investment Committee, I work closely with the College to produce the greatest possible impact from our endowment. However, I am also keenly aware of the great impact of Franklin & Marshall Fund gifts of all sizes.
Giving to the Franklin & Marshall Fund through the halfway point of the year totaled more than $2.2 million — the equivalent of the output of more than $44 million in endowed funds. Our FY2014 goal is to raise $4.75 million — equal to the amount generated by $95 million in endowed funds!
Please support the Franklin & Marshall Fund this year. As you’ll read in the following pages, the Franklin & Marshall Fund continues to play a vital role in keeping the vision of our founders alive for today’s high-achieving students and in securing it for the future.
