The Wichita State University Foundation has been recognized with a Gold Award in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Circle of Excellence program for its Promise for the Future planned giving campaign.
Michael Lamb, the WSU Foundation's vice president for planned giving, submitted the entry, which comprised materials, including ads and Horizon stories, created by various foundation staff members.
The entry was one of 46 in the category for Targeted Fundraising Campaigns and the only one to receive a gold award, the top honor.
The Promise for the Future campaign had a goal of establishing 100 legacy gifts for WSU made through instruments such as retirement plans, wills, trusts, life insurance and gift annuities.
When the campaign ended on June 30, 2012, the goal had been met in full.
The CASE Circle of Excellence program recognizes outstanding work in advancement services, alumni relations, communications, fundraising and marketing as judged by peer professionals at member institutions, as well as by professionals from outside education.
CASE is one of the largest international associations of educational institutions, serving more than 3,600 colleges, universities and schools in 76 countries.
