BAKER PROUD | Summer 2019

O

n April 4, Baker University hosted its second Day of Giving, a 24-hour event of in-person and
online giving. The day featured a series of challenges and matching gift opportunities to raise
funds for students at the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Professional and Graduate

Studies, School of Education, School of Nursing, and Department of Athletics. The event raised $128,868.55
from more than 200 donors.
In contrast to this 24-hour event, Forever Orange: The Campaign for Baker University is a long-term

endeavor to raise the funds necessary to propel the university forward by supporting scholarships, faculty
excellence, student experiences, and capital projects. Forever Orange was quietly launched in May 2016 and
publicly announced in April 2018 with a fundraising goal of $20 million. During the October campaign
kickoff event, President Lynne Murray and the Baker University Board of Trustees announced a new
campaign goal of $28 million. The decision to raise the goal was based on the early generosity of the Baker
community.
"We're forever grateful to our alumni and donors for their continued generosity," said Danielle Jones
Rease, vice president of advancement. "Their contributions will make a difference in leaving a lasting
legacy for future generations of Wildcats."
As of April 15, Forever Orange has raised more than $23 million, including a $3.4 million gift from
Martha "Marty" Mather, '49, which is the largest single donation by a living individual to the university.
Another significant gift is $1.2 million from the Swogger Foundation. The organization was established
by L. Glenn Swogger Sr., 1915, as a trust created for charitable and educational purposes. This leadership
gift will be used to establish the Swogger Foundation Humanities Professorship and the Primary Texts
Endowment Fund. Teaching through primary texts is a special interest of Dr. Glenn Swogger Jr., and this
gift honors his father.
