The University of Maryland plans to launch a campaign to raise tens of millions of dollars to build an indoor practice facility that it believes it needs to compete successfully in the Big Ten in football. “We are planning on a major capital campaign,” university president Wallace Loh said in an interview. “All the Big Ten institutions have indoor facilities - of course, obviously because of the weather. But we need it, too. I think that's what it's going to take to recruit even better student athletes, not just for football but for other teams as well.” The cost of such a facility is estimated in the range of $50 million to $80 million.

SEVERN SCHOOL'S new capital campaign, Giant Strides, has taken a huge step forward with a record-setting contribution from Severna Park businessman Chris McCleary. McCleary's pledge of $1.2 million, announced during homecoming activities two weeks ago, is the largest donation in the school's 87-year history and brings the total committed by individuals to the school's building fund to $3.1 million. The donation also could be the impetus for the campaign to reach its goal of raising $7.3 million for such improvements as a new upper school academic building and renovated classrooms, and to strengthen the school's endowment.

The Johns Hopkins University raised $3.7 billion during an eight-year capital campaign that ended in December, a sum close to double the original goal and one that enabled the university to start a business school, construct new facilities, endow 92 professorships and boost student financial aid.

Commitment seems to come naturally to Anne Arundel County resident R. Kent Schwab. As a Boy Scout he completed his Eagle Scout requirements before he was 15. He joined his high school newspaper and eventually became editor. And when he joined a fraternity in college, he ended up serving as its president. So it's not surprising that after listening to a presentation eight years ago about a new fundraising campaign for the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, Schwab didn't just offer his help but jumped in with both feet.

When Maryvale Preparatory School in Brooklandville breaks ground Friday on $12 million in upgrades and an expansion, the goal will be to benefit future students at the all-girls school. But it could not have been done without a family's devotion to a student who died three years ago. The project will include a new humanities center, a new turf field, softball field and track, road reorientation and a new storm water management facility. It is being accomplished as the result of the capital campaign, "In Her Name," in memory of Erinn McCarthy, who would have graduated with the Class of 2010.

Volunteers have launched an 18-month "make-a-splash" capital campaign to raise money for the expansion.
