Ripon College racing through $50M campaign
Massive capital campaign will support endowment, planning for renovations, more``

   Economic news the past few years has been mostly poor, but benefactors of Ripon College never got the memo.

   The largest fund-raising campaign in the school’s 162-year history is off to a dramatic start.

   More than $35 million of the ambitious $50 million target has been raised since summer 2010, when the campaign launched.

   That’s better than 70 percent of the goal, raised in two and a half years.

   “Campaign funds will support new scholarships for students; faculty and student research; off-campus study opportunities; efforts to attract and retain faculty; and enhance facilities,” a news release from the college states.

   And now, the campaign is reaching out, with President Zach Messitte announcing the “public phase” of Imagine Tomorrow last week Friday during a campaign kickoff at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

   This was made to a crowd of more than 100 alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students.
