Will UND actually see a fundraising bump now that Kennedy is gone?
With Kennedy gone, may KEM be willing to partially finance Phase II through the Ralph, similar to the Betty donation loan?
Everyone knows that UND Hockey has by far the most support from fans. Would UND be better off fundraising for things like the 2m in RAE funds, used for the scoreboard, and allowing the money to flow to other programs? Currently it's the other way around, with other programs putting in so much effort for fundraising. For instance, golf has to fundraise for their annual budget, but if the RAE money flowed through them, and the hockey program identified a fundraising need for the same amount, I think UND would have a much better chance of reaching said goal, and overall donations could increase. Example: 2million from RAE that was used for the scoreboard goes to Phase 2, and the hockey program finds donations for a new scoreboard. Could also sell naming rights to scoreboard.
How far along is UND in it's fundraising efforts for the business school? They have a 20m donation from an anonymous donar, and 20m from the state so far, correct? They need about 60m? Will the business school sell naming rights? "Cargill School of Business" perhaps?
