The six-year, $15 million Doors to Success campaign-- the longest and largest in Fredonia's history--went public May 2, 2008, with the dedication of the Carnahan-Jackson Center for Learning and Scholarship in Reed Library. It concluded at the end of 2011 having gone over its goal by $1.7 million. Read news article
The center signifies and honors the longstanding financial and volunteer support given by the Carnahan-Jackson Foundation to the SUNY Fredonia community over the years, as well as the personal philanthropy and leadership provided by its Board Chairman, David H. Carnahan. The Carnahan-Jackson Foundation has provided the lead gift in each of the last three capital campaigns (including the current one), dating back to 1995. Its total gifts and pledges during this span now exceed $1.5 million.
The dollars generated during the campaign, entitled, "Doors to Success: the Campaign for Fredonia," will be used primarily to fund scholarships, student educational enrichment, academic program enhancement and cultural programming.
