Following is the full text of Dr. McMickle's essay:
Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School is delighted to announce that for the 4th year in a row, the Fund for CRCDS has surpassed its goal!
CRCDS raised a total of $365,410 against a very ambitious goal of $355k, the second largest amount since 2006-07. Please join us in giving thanks to God for the generosity of all who support our beloved school and its vitally important mission.
CRCDS is also pleased to report that for the 4th year in a row, 100% of all governing Trustees, staff and faculty participated in the annual fund. We remain grateful for the level of commitment to CRCDS this demonstrates by those who work daily to ensure the school’s current and future success.
We could not have reached our goal without the tremendous support of our many alumni, alumnae, friends and churches whose steadfast generosity continues to provide resources necessary for the operation of this treasured school. On behalf of the Trustees, President McMickle, the faculty, staff and, most importantly, the students, we offer our sincere gratitude to all of you who helped make this year’s success a reality. Because of you, the future of CRCDS and progressive theological education remains bright and full of promise.
