Campbell University Office of Annual Giving is partnering with alumni members of the Camel Company division of the Campbell Battalion ROTC to launch a crowdfunding scholarship campaign.
A crowdfunding platform set up through Campbell’s Office of Annual Giving allows interested parties to contribute directly to this scholarship campaign and share their interest online via their social media channels.
Created by three Camel Company commissioned officers, the Camel Company Alumni Scholarship fund will help ensure that cadets can complete their full academic and leadership potential without worrying about financial burdens.
“This crowdfunding initiative is important to my friends and me because, once successful, it makes permanent and enduring an idea three old friends had at a pancake shop one morning in 2011,” said MAJ Brett McCreight (‘97).
McCreight, along with Bryan Kirk and Christopher Samples, initiated the scholarship fund as a way to assist and encourage current ROTC students to continue the standard of excellence set by Campbell’s ROTC program since 1971.
“Achieving the $25,000 endowment status allows Campbell University ROTC alumni to provide scholarship monies to qualified and deserving cadets in the best ROTC program in the nation forever.”
Gifts made through this initiative count towards Campbell’s current capital campaign initiative Campbell Leads, which aims to raise $75 million for scholarships and a new student union.
