Wayne State College launched the public phase of the Centennial Campaign Remembering the Past ~ Investing in the Future, a $20-million comprehensive capital campaign, on Aug. 28. Phyllis Conner, Vice President for Development and Executive Director of the Wayne State Foundation, explained that capital campaigns go through a silent, or advanced gift phase, to raise 50 percent to 60 percent of the goal before going public. The campaign is conducted in this manner to gain a sense of the support for the campaign initiatives and an indication of the potential for reaching the goal successfully.
