Franklin College announced it has received gifts from two donors, Katharine Kruse, an Indianapolis business entrepreneur and board of trustees member, and Eleanor T. Ackley, a Florida business entrepreneur and 1971 alumna of the college, designated to expand the college’s marketing efforts in the Indianapolis metropolitan area.
“These generous gifts have a tremendous impact on both our ability to recruit future students and engage with our alumni,” said Kate Coffman, vice president and dean of admissions and financial aid. “Increased marketing and visibility of the Franklin College brand is a key feature of the college’s strategic plan. We couldn’t accomplish it without our alumni and trustees supporting the college with powerful financial gifts.”
The college launched a new brand strategy anchored on the pillar of “Relentlessly Pursue” in August of 2017. It speaks to the college’s varied and immersive experiences that build on a strong, active and tailored liberal arts and sciences education, putting students in control of their future.
This is the fourth gift announcement the college has made in the last month, totaling more than $2.6 million.
