by Katie Bradley | Nov 26, 2013

President Daniel J. Elsener was honored with the Outstanding Fundraising Professional Award by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Indiana Chapter on Friday, November 15, 2013.

Led by President Elsener, Marian University’s Make History Campaign raised $163 million, nearly $100 million more than the campaign’s original goal of $68 million. The Make History Campaign publically launched in October 2007, produced a total of $19 million in gifts, including seven gifts of $45 million or more.

Since Elsener became president in 2001, Marian University has experienced unprecedented growth, including the building of two new residence halls, a new athletic field (and football program), and most remarkably, the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences and the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

For 30 years, the Association of Fundraising Professionals has honored individuals, civic organizations, foundations, corporations, and small businesses for the important contributions they make to our communities across the state of Indiana every day.
