Centenary College giving hits three-year high

Amid a still-uncertain financial climate of rising costs and decreased enrollment, donors are stepping up to support Centenary College.

According to financial information released by Centenary, donor support for the liberal arts college reached a three-year high of about $6.6 million. That’s up $400,000 from last year’s total and an increase of $500,000 from 2011.

“Our alumni and other donors are supporting us in such a large way and helping us to offer students more scholarships and opportunities with each donation,” said Fred Landry, associate vice president of advancement.

Approximately $4 million of the total will go toward student scholarships. And with tuition once again set to see an increase of roughly $1,000 to total $30,740, every dollar counts.
