Sweeney Lays Out Campaign Strategy
 

Robert D. SweeneyFrom Staff Reports

Robert D. Sweeney, senior vice president for development and public affairs, came to Saturday’s board meeting to lead a policy discussion on philanthropy and laid out his strategy and vision for the University’s next campaign — an ambitious plan to raise $3 billion in private gifts for the University of Virginia by 2011. The target is more than double the $1.4 billion raised during U.Va.’s last campaign, and it ranks as one of the most ambitious set by any university in the nation for a single fundraising campaign, according to University officials.
