A HAPPY NEW YEAR! - Friday, January 13, 2017

2017 began with really great news of reaching the 50K Match Challenge!  As promised, a check written for $50,000.00 arrived from our bighearted donor who wishes to remain anonymous once it was realized that the dollar for dollar “Match” was met.    

It was an exultant moment when the final envelopes arrived containing contributions from loyal donors that brought the Challenge “over the top,” resulting in a magnificent total.

$  50,000.00   Anonymous Donation

$  54,421.36   Matching Donations

$104,421.36   TOTAL

A public thank you goes to the anonymous donor, a YC graduate, for the immense generosity and brilliant approach of involving more alums as YC stakeholders.

The YTD Legacy Campaign totals are:
Amount Pledged and Received  $463,737.47
Amount Pledged                       $100,138.64
Amount Received                      $363,598.83

This brings us over halfway to reaching the $750,000 goal. Yankton College could not be more appreciative and thankful to all of you.
