Vice President Jim Orr of Abilene Christian University tasked his leadership team with developing a clear and transformational Advancement plan for FY17. The goals and metrics that supported the plan were developed in collaboration with the staff who would be responsible for executing it. There was strong agreement on what goals were realistic and exactly what would be done.
As ACU wraps up their Campaign, they celebrate the opening of a new science building, a new football stadium, and raising over $50 million in endowed scholarships. After all this success, the ACU advancement program is still improving. Goals for FY17 included building an even stronger prospect discovery program, changing their approach to the annual fund, and investing more in prospect research and portfolio management.
