We did it!
The Time Is Now Campaign has enjoyed tremendous success thanks to the many friends and donors who helped propel us over our goal of $18,000,000. A total of $18,350,816 was committed through November, 2015. The Campaign Executive Leadership Council, Trustees, President Fleming and Vice President Vicki Pugh thank the volunteers and donors who made this achievement possible.
The Time Is Now Campaign is part of a strategic plan to assist Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) in achieving its vision to fund urgent needs. These included Phase III of the Rinker Athletic Campus (completed) Endowed Scholarships and Academic Program Expansion/Enhancement.
As we celebrated the victory of The Time is Now Campaign, a new and exciting opportunity arose. In order to meet the provisional membership requirements in the Sunshine State Conference, a new building is required at the Rinker Athletic Campus to house athletic training rooms, locker rooms and coaches offices. The campaign goal and timeline will be extended so that we may raise funds needed for this building, while continuing efforts to establish additional endowed scholarship funds and new academic programs and enhancements.
More information about the extension of The Time is Now Campaign will be announced in spring 2016! We look forward to sharing contribution and naming opportunities with you and continue to encourage your support of The Time is Now Campaign!
In December 2010, PBA announced the largest gift to support Sailfish athletics in program history with a $4 million gift from the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Foundation for construction of the new campus.
In recognition of the generosity of the foundation and Trustee John Rinker and his wife Sheila, the campus has been named in honor of Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker.
