Quincy University launched its 2017-18 QU Fund drive with a $1M goal on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at a reception held in the school’s private dining room. The fund drive has topped the $1 million mark for the past seven years. Last year, the QU Fund drive raised $1,010,943 in support of campus improvements, technology enhancements and student scholarships.
“While we are grateful for the generosity of our alumni, friends and businesses last fiscal year, it is very important that we do not get too comfortable,” said Julie Bell, vice president of advancement. “As we continue to address the university financial recovery, it is imperative that we maintain seven-figure support of the QU Fund to address the University’s current greatest needs.”
Chairpersons for this year’s campaign are Kevin ’90 and Sheri (Davis) Reller ’92.
The Reller’s are dedicated university financial supporters and volunteers. Kevin formerly served as QU’s vice president for advancement and has been a volunteer for QU Fund drive for many years.
“Sheri and I are excited to chair the QU Fund this year. We are both graduates, were married in the QU Chapel, and our oldest daughter Logan is a 2011 QU graduate. We are grateful that the University has enriched our lives through its educational and spiritual contributions to the Quincy area,” said QU Fund Chair, Kevin Reller.
