Step Forward campaign still set to finish next year


In spite of a difficult last year for fundraising, Macalester’s Step Forward capital campaign is still on track to finish by the end of 2011.The campaign, created to fund the Leonard Center, the Institute for Global Citizenship, the Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center renovations, and Macalester’s endowment, was originally scheduled to reach its $150 million goal by the summer of 2011. When the financial crisis hit, that timeline became unrealistic.
