Colby College exceeded its $370-million campaign goal June 30, raising a total of $375,886,268 million in the largest fundraising campaign in Maine’s history

“The success of this campaign shouldn’t be taken for granted,” said Robert E. Diamond Jr. ’73, chair of Colby’s Board of Trustees and president of Barclays Bank PLC. “Exceeding our ambitious $370-million goal, despite the worst global recession in generations during these last two years of the campaign, is a stunning achievement.”

We want to share with you some of the inspiring stories, the new initiatives, and the results with lasting impact that have come from this magnificent effort. We hope you will enjoy these brief Flash presentations and accept our heartfelt thanks for all that you have done and will do to support Colby.
