The Cole Challenge... Will You Accept?


Dr. Cole’s love of the arts at Longwood was underscored recently when he issued a challenge gift with the goal of funding a full-time position in collections management at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts. Recognizing the importance of managing and protecting the works of art given to the university, Dr. Cole gave the LCVA $125,000 with a challenge to raise an additional $165,000 to create an endowment for a permanent full-time collections manager and to fund a part-time position for three years while the fund matures.

This endowed position will be responsible for the management, care, conservation, and stewardship of the works of art held by Longwood University. To date, the challenge has reached $129,156, so we are almost there. If you would like to make a contribution to the fund, please contact Courtney Hodges, Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations at 434.395.2823 or hodgesmc@longwood.edu.
