Mount Allison completes JUMP Campaign early with $96 million raised

October 12, 2012

Mount Allison University wrapped up its JUMP Campaign Friday -- 2 years ahead of schedule and $10 million over target. The largest campaign in Mount Allison's history, JUMP was launched in 2004 with the goal of raising $86 million over a 10-year period. Instead, the $96-million total was reached in just 8 years. Of the money raised, more than $30 million is being added to Mount Allison's endowment funds. More than $13 million of that was directed toward student scholarships, bursaries, and awards. At $122 million, Mount Allison has the second-largest university endowment per capita in the country. JUMP has also provided funding for significant capital projects, such as the Wallace McCain Student Centre, the Ron Joyce Centre for Business Studies, the Harold Crabtree Aqualab: Centre for Aquatic Sciences, and the new Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts, for which Mount Allison held a sod-turning ceremony on Friday.
