Generosity abounded this year as Case Western Reserve University saw an abundance of donations from its alumni and friends as they committed a total of $115.5 million to enhance the university's interests. The second-highest donation total in CWRU history, these contributions will help to improve several important aspects of the university, the most notable of which will create several new facilities for student life.

University donations have been on the rise since the arrival of CWRU president Barbara Snyder in 2007. Amy Raufman, Director of Development Communications within University Marketing, attributed the recent increase in donations to Snyder's leadership and initiative. "She's built really strong relationships that lay the ground for giving increases," said Raufman.

Additionally, a streamlined and progressive strategic vision for the university has "given staff and volunteers a framework for how the university will move forward," explained Raufman. This vision emphasizes a nurturing environment, where every person will be able to discover their potential and broaden their understanding of the world. "Donors are seeing that CWRU has great potential and a bright future," stated USG vice president of Student Life Divya Aggarwal. "These sentiments and the subsequent investments to the university are helping to enrich, support, and improve our campus life."

While several contributions will go toward enhancing the university's scholastic interests, the most heavily anticipated of these donations will affect the non-academic sector of CWRU, and will create several new facilities for student life, including a performance center, an athletic facility, and, most notably, a university center.
