2010-11 Linfield Fund Report
During 2010-11, more than 2,000 alumni, parents, employees and friends of Linfield College contributed a combined $742,750 to the Linfield Fund. These generous gifts supported student scholarships, facility and technology improvements, faculty recruitment and development, and a strong education and memorable experience for students like Nic ’13.
A mass communication major, Nic participates in varsity cross country and track and field, ASLC student government and tutoring local high school students through the Upward Bound mentoring program. He has cultivated his talents in media and communications through KSLC, Linfield’s student-powered radio station and through coursework and volunteer work in video production. Nic knows that the close-knit environment and varied academic and extracurricular opportunities he benefits from are uniquely Linfield:
"Linfield has provided me with a chance grow and develop as a leader and gain confidence in my academic interests. I’m thankful to be a part of an institution that produces such loyal and giving graduates and donors who make my Linfield experience possible."
|2010-11 Linfield Fund Overview|
Gifts to the Linfield Fund are vital to the success of Linfield students. Your gifts support hands-on learning opportunities, improved facilities and technology, and thriving, vital campus communities. Learn more about some of the recent impacts of your gifts below:
Gifts to the Linfield Fund – Student Scholarships provided scholarship assistance to 503 McMinnville and Portland campus students during 2010-11, giving them the opportunity to continue their Linfield education.
Linfield faculty remain current in their academic fields and conversant with the latest in classroom technology by attending professional development conferences, workshops, and seminars regionally, nationally, and internationally. In 2010-11, gifts to the Linfield Fund also helped bring national experts to campus to work with faculty on improving classroom instruction and securing grants for research and program development.
Your gifts also supported capital improvements on campus including renovations, sustainability improvements and new construction projects. Historic Northup Hall was given an all-over facelift and will be rededicated as T.J. Day Hall during Homecoming 2011. Additional projects included:
- Combined heat and power (CHP) upgrades, an energy conservation measure resulting in more efficient energy consumption
- Remodel of office and testing spaces for Learning Support Services in Walker Hall, serving students with physical and learning disabilities
- A/V upgrades for the Sandbox classroom, which features contemporary learning spaces and technology, blending traditional pedagogy with modern technology advancements
Without your gifts, these scholarships and improvements would not be possible. Your gift provides the financial aid and learning resources students need to receive a top-notch education and memorable experience at Linfield College. Thank you.
