The investment balance is reported at a tax cost basis of $2,182,959.  This amount is broken down between $1,901,513 in long-term investments and $281,446 in a short-term money market both of which are invested with SunTrust.  The market value of the long-term investments at the end of the fourth quarter was $2,191,098.  Dividends and interest for the fourth quarter were $61,660 and investment fees were $19,543.

The Board unanimously accepted the Treasurer’s report as presented.


In Michael Bradford’s absence, Mr. Sutton presented items that the Resource Development Committee discussed at their meeting on July 20, 2011.
Mr. Sutton reviewed the fourth quarter unrestricted FY11 Annual Fund which is $55,612 compared to $58,503 in year prior.  Restricted gifts are $515,289 compared to $646,579 year prior.  Total gifts for FY11 were $570,901 compared to $705,083 year prior. 
The executive director then stated that the Resource Development Committee proposed that the FY12 annual fund goal be set at 10% of the FY11 gifts or $61,173.
Mr. Sutton then reported that the Tobacco Commission grants had remaining balances of $167,102.  The Foundation has sent the FY12 requests to the Tobacco Commission asking for funding to purchase a wire EDM ($135,000) and Respiratory Therapy Program Lab Equipment ($85,000).
The executive director stated that the Access to Opportunity had outstanding pledges totaling $48,730 with the ending campaign total being $266,390 toward a goal of $250,000.
Mr. Sutton then outlined the Annual Fund plan for FY12.  The executive director will call on each member of the Foundation Board to ask for their annual fund support and to encourage them to also solicit with the executive director 2-3 individuals or corporations.
These calls will center on previous or past donors who will be asked to consider again supporting the CVCC Educational Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign.

Mr. Sutton provided the board with copies of a future meeting schedule and an updated standing committee list.    He also informed the board that all future meetings will be held in the Merritt Hall multi-purpose room.


Dr. Capps thanked the board members for sharing their time, resources and financial commitment to the Foundation.  He also thanked Mr. Moorshead for his leadership of the board.
Over the last five months, there have been goals put into place to accomplish the Achieve 2015 strategic plan of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS).  Some of those goals are as follows:
·         Increase the total headcount enrollment by 3%.
·         Increase enrollment from underserved populations – if the College doesn’t serve underrepresented populations, no one will.  Region 2000 was ranked 49th in the latest Forbes ranking and 155th in educational attainment.
·         Educational programs – Annually develop at least one new academic program (degree, certificate or career studies certificate) that respond to emerging, critical workforce needs in Region 2000, particularly in STEM-related areas (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).  This objective was put in place for the talks with the Region 2000 Technology Council about establishing a regional STEM academy.
·         Increase financial aid applicants and recipients – the College will increase the number of students who apply for and who receive financial aid and scholarships by 10%. 
·         Develop and institute a mechanism for awarding Federal Student Loans as part of a comprehensive financial aid program.
·         Serve employers through College courses and programs – increase the number of employers served through college credit and noncredit courses, customized training and other outreach efforts by 10%.
·         Increase fundraising by 10% and increase employee giving by 10%.
·         Employ additional full-time faculty and staff to strengthen programs, ensure consistency and continuity and foster greater collegiality.  There will be six new full-time faculty; two new staff in counseling; one position each in financial aid, institutional effectiveness, workforce development and the library.  All positions vetted through the College’s strategic planning initiative.


There was no old business to report.


Mr. Moorshead recognized Skip Lamb, the Local Board liaison.


There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:45 AM.  The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2011 in the Johnnie E. Merritt Hall.
