Legacy Right on course UofL is well on its way to completing its goal of raising $1 billion in private support for the Charting Our Course comprehensive campaign by July 2014. So far, UofL has raised more than $780 million from thousands of donors, including a $6 million donation coordinated through the Henry Vogt Foundation and its president, Henry V. Heuser, Jr. "The support we've received from donors large and small has been unbelievable," said Keith Inman, vice president for university advancement. "We've blown away our original goal and we're headed toward a billion dollars with a renewed focus on raising money for student scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty teaching and research support." The successful campaign is just another indication of the university moving in the right direction. In the last year, UofL welcomed one of the most academically talented freshman classes in school history, while receiving millions of dollars in medical research grants to fnd cures and treatments for everything from cancer to heart disease. UofL's upset of Florida in the Allstate Sugar Bowl and dominance on the basketball court also raised its national profle and contributed to the campaign's bustling pace. Although the campaign is going strong, there is still a long way to go, Inman said, urging people who have not yet taken part to help out in any way they can. "All gifts — large or small — make an impact at the University of Louisville," Inman said. "Your donation could go to providing a scholarship to a deserving student or help fund research that can save lives." 16|LOUISVILLE.EDU Fans and donors from all over the country got together for some BIG EAST basketball and a dinner at the Helmsley Suite at the Park Lane Hotel in New York City.
