More than a thousand donors boost Lakeland College

A five-year fundraising campaign has garnered Lakeland College $12 million. 

That’s $1 million above the campaign goal. As of April 30, 1,096 people had made 2,967 donations. 

The fundraising initiative is focused on three priorities: Expanding student success, empowering the next leaders in agriculture, and growing results-oriented research. 

“Because of our donors’ generosity, Lakeland students have access to more opportunities and services,” said Mike Kotelko, chair of the campaign leadership team and a member of Lakeland’s Class of 1982. “They’re learning in new and modernized facilities. And research capacity has grown at Lakeland, with the primary goal of advancing real-world agricultural productivity and sustainability.”
