Shorter College Receives Gifts Towards Library Campaign
Shorter College President Harold E. Newman announced recently that the John and Mary Franklin Foundation has made a $50,000 pledge toward the college’s Campaign for Library Excellence. The foundation will donate $10,000 per year over the next five years.
The gift closely follows a $10,000 cash gift from the Frances Wood Wilson Foundation of Atlanta, which also was directed to the library campaign.
“We are very pleased with these gifts to our library project and grateful for the expression of confidence in Shorter College which these foundations’ gifts have made,” Dr. Newman said.
Shorter’s Campaign for Library Excellence seeks to raise funds for the construction of a new library wing and renovation of existing space. The project will create an additional 18,800 square feet of library space that features expanded space for library holdings; study group meeting rooms; a study café; a special collections room for archival materials; enlarged research centers for music, art, Christian studies, language and literature; and a two-story cathedral atrium for study and special events.
Contributions to the Campaign for Library Excellence may be sent to the Shorter College Office of Institutional Advancement, Campus Box 28, 315 Shorter Avenue, Rome, GA 30165. For additional information, call 706-233-7216.
