In Pursuit

Jewell's Campaign for the Future

In Pursuit

In Pursuit: Jewell’s Campaign for the Future exceeds $75 million goal. But we’re not done! 

Dedicated campaign supporters–individuals, foundations, businesses, and organizations–allowed us to reach our initial goal of $75 million. With the College gaining momentum during this time through increased enrollment, renewed accreditation, strong student diversity, among many other highlights, the Board of Trustees decided to extend In Pursuit and raise our goal to $100 million. Our hope is by October 2024 we will reach $100 million in campaign gifts. The additional gifts will help our Jewell students by completing Phase II of The Link Project and providing Access Scholarships.

The campaign supports students, but it also enhances industry, the economy, our larger community and our leaders. These constituents are represented in our campaign priorities: People, Places and Programs. In Pursuit intentionally suggests the possibility of a better future for all who embrace critical thinking and act with purpose.

Join Jewell in its pursuit to chart a bold path into the future.

“The In Pursuit campaign is a focused effort to support the College’s bold vision to be recognized as the top producer of engaged critical thinkers in Greater Kansas City and beyond. The campaign supports students but it also enhances industry, the local economy, community members, and leaders in our region. Please join me in investing in the people, places, and programs at Jewell that are truly changing the world!”

Steve Karbank, Campaign Cabinet Chair and Jewell Trustee
