College of the Atlantic launched the Broad Reach capital campaign in October 2017. Using our strategic plan as a guide, the campaign would help us address our most critical needs, including: campus infrastructure, scholarships, student housing, endowed faculty chairs, the waterfront program, and the new writing program. We set a goal to raise $50M in four years—our most ambitious campaign in the history of the college. With enthusiastic support from hundreds of our friends, we raised over $55M in three years’ time!

**The additional money raised over the $50M goal will go towards the student residences priority.  The costs associated with this priority were initially underestimated, therefore additional funds were raised to meet the goal of providing housing for 75% of students.

*Estimated campaign costs have been paid for by generous gifts from COA trustees, to ensure that each dollar raised from others will go to the priorities listed above.
