ONLY PART OF THE STORY By Dan Macaluso, vice president for advancement


Here’s my dilemma: Tere’s so much more to convey than these two pages can hold. I’ll do my best to highlight some of the key activities and results of the 2011–2012 fiscal year, but the real progress is apparent when you walk the campus and see the physical spaces being transformed, when the news promi- nently mentions HMC as a national leader, when you inter- act with faculty and learn of their latest accomplishments, and when you meet HMC students and are reminded of the quality of intellect and strength of character that defines our community. So, while this column details some impressive results from the 2011–2012 fiscal year, remember that it is only part of the story. Overall fundraising for the 2011–2012 fiscal year resulted

in $11,085,851 in cash gifts received. Tis includes payments on previous pledges, but does not include pledges to be paid in future years. In addition, this number does not include Clinic or government support, which totaled just under $4 million. In co- ordination with our ongoing annual giving efforts, we provided opportunities this year for giving to two special projects: one for annual gifts in support of the new teaching and learning building—recognized with individualized “warts” from the original Tomas-Garrett Hall—and the second a project that successfully leveraged a $500,000 matching gift to create a $1 million endowed summer research fund in chemistry. Foun- dation support also remains strong, funding programs such as scholarships, faculty and student research, and the College’s Summer Institute, which provides residential programs to select entering first-year students to inspire confidence during their transition to HMC. Alumni and Parent Relations continues to provide more

and better opportunities for alumni, parents and other key constituents to stay connected and to reconnect with the

College. Te Advancement office’s close and productive part- nership with the Alumni Association Board of Governors continues to enhance many of the College’s ongoing activities and to foster new and creative ways to engage alumni and parents. Tis past year, a variety of alumni, parent and prospective student events and gatherings—including summer sendoffs, a Shakespeare festival, Hollywood Bowl pyrotechnics, networking events, sporting, camping and hiking events, viewings of the so- lar eclipse and the transit of Venus, and even a Grunion Run— were held along the West Coast and across the country with broad participation from alumni and parents. Te two major on-campus events—Family Weekend in February and Alumni Weekend in April—also continue to grow in attendance, with Family Weekend drawing 450 guests (10 percent more than last year). Alumni Weekend attracted more than 750 guests, and there were slight increases in both total attendance and alumni attendance. Other campus events included an alumni-sponsored event in

August commemorating the 50-year-old Tomas-Garrett Hall, which was razed to make way for the new teaching and learning building. Faculty, staff and alumni recounted their Tomas- Garrett experiences—warts and all—and then helped remove warts with a pneumatic drill. Following this event, in late September, many of our past and present trustees and alumni board members gathered for a campus-wide event to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new building, which is scheduled to open before the fall 2013 semester. Furthermore, HMC continued the tradition of conducting two annual public lecture series: Te Dr. Bruce J. Nelson ’74 Distinguished Speaker Series, honoring the International Year of Chemistry and celebrating chemistry’s contributions

to humankind, and Te Walter and Leonore Annenberg Leadership and Management Speaker Series, which
