Algoma U to run $2-million fine arts fundraising campaign

March 9, 2009

This fall, Algoma University is expected to launch a $2-million fundraising campaign for a new facility for its fine arts programs and Algoma Conservatory of Music. The fundraiser will be part of a larger campaign, ranging from $5 million to $7 million, to support a number of research chairs and student financial awards. The $10-million fine arts building project was slated to begin in 2011, but if government funding becomes available soon, construction could start before the end of this year. Sault Star
