Colorado College launched its most ambitious fundraising campaign yet with an announcement on Oct. 16, during the dedication of the renovated Charles L. Tutt Library. The $435-million campaign is the highest goal in its 143-year history. The campaign will raise money for scholarships, innovation programming, support for faculty and coaches, and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.

The Fine Arts Center will transfer to Colorado College as a gift valued at more than $175 million, the largest ever to the school, according to a news release. The college is raising funds for the center, with a goal of increasing its endowment to $45 million.

"We are embarking on this campaign because a Colorado College education is more relevant today than ever," Colorado College President Jill Tiefenthaler said in the release. "The academic rigor of our pioneering Block Plan, and our unique place in the Rocky Mountain West have positioned our students, alumni and faculty to make a difference in the world. Through the campaign, we will invest in the extraordinary potential of a Colorado College education."
