CREATE OUR FUTURE:
The $45 million Create Our Future Campaign will raise $32 million for the capital renovation and expansion of COCA’s historic building in University City and $13 million to fund its endowment and reserves.
To date, COCA has secured $43 million from private sources—with 100 percent of its Board of Directors, Campaign Steering Committee, Associate Board, and staff contributing. Lead gifts include $5 million from Cathy & Jim Berges, Alison & John Ferring, and Kim Kuehner – the largest gift ever made by all three. Also, $3 million from Centene Charitable Foundation, $2 million gifts from Cheryl Holman, David Joyner & Bill Lawton, and Carol & Michael Staenberg, $1.5 million from Monsanto, and $1 million gifts from Jennifer & Tom Hillman, Jane & Dave Peacock, and Edward Jones.
