- Campaign ends, construction begins
On June 13, more than 200 people gathered at the University of Charleston’s Rotunda to celebrate reaching the fundraising goal of $15 million to bring a new cancer center to our region. The event marked the successful completion of the Power of Many campaign.
During the evening, everyone in attendance was thanked and recognized for helping to achieve the fundraising goal which ensures that CAMC will continue to provide the best in cancer care.
The Power of Many campaign kicked off in 2009. Meeting the goal – raising $15 million for the new cancer center – has been a huge undertaking.
That the whole community so readily got behind this effort is truly something the people of our region should be proud of.
This project was the first of its kind for the CAMC Foundation, and was successful only because of so much help from the community at large. More than 2,174 donors, with gifts of all sizes – from $2 to $2 million – gave to the campaign to build a new cancer center. Of those donors, 1,313 were new donors to the CAMC Foundation who were touched by the cause and interested in bringing a state-of-the-art facility to our region, where family, friends and neighbors can be treated close to home.
CAMC estimates that the new cancer center will open in 2015. In the meantime, we invite you to watch our progress by visiting camc.org/watchourprogress
