The Campaign's Kick-off Event
Calvin publicly launched its $150 million fundraising Campaign—No greater task: Hearts and Minds Renewing God's World—on September 19, 2007 at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. Nearly 1,100 Calvin alumni and friends attended the two-part program which included a staged video presentation of Calvin alumni at work in the world and a dinner with remarks by Campaign co-chairs Elsa Prince Broekhuizen and Milt Kuyers, Board of Trustees chair Bastiaan Knoppers and Calvin president Gaylen Byker.
During the next 18 months, all alumni are invited to think seriously and consider prayerfully how to participate in the Campaign for Calvin. During these coming months of the public phase of the campaign, representatives from the college will contact alumni about campaign participation. In addition, campaign information will be mailed inviting a campaign gift or pledge. Alumni who wish to make a gift immediately to the campaign, may contact the campaign office at 616-526-6697.
