Reach Beyond Campaign Surpasses $5 Million

Inficon GiftOnondaga's capital campaign, Reach Beyond, has surpassed the $5 million mark thanks to a $30,000 gift from INFICON, Inc. Their gift brings the Campaign total to $5,025,505 and edges the campaign closer to reaching its $6 million goal. This gift, when added to $20,000 given last year, brings the total gifts from Inficon to $50,000.

When asked about the $5 million dollar total, Allen J. Naples, Co-Chair of the Reach Beyond Campaign said, "The generosity of individuals and corporations has been outstanding,  “They understand, as I do, that a gift to the Reach Beyond Campaign is an investment in the future of our community." To date, more than 170 generous alumni, employee, and corporate donors as well as friends of the College have joined together to help Onondaga Community College students.

The Reach Beyond capital campaign is led by Honorary Chair William F. Allyn and Co-Chairs Robert U. Roberts and Allen J. Naples. View the complete list of Campaign leadership.
