Wow! 2014 heralded in our first Crowdrise campaign and it was a lot of fun! Together we raised $43,465 – with donations still rolling in – to present programs, underwrite entry fees, award scholarships and connect with our alumni. From alum Lena Dunham’s tweet on Giving Tuesday to support the Awards to the Director of the Andy Warhol Museum, Eric Shiner, sharing the experience of alum Andy Warhol, we heard so many compelling stories from alums and friends across the country.

(Psst. You can also still donate to our Annual Appeal before December 31, 2014 here!:
