Support for Forman Christian College

Friends of Forman Christian College was founded in 2004 specifically to support and strengthen Forman Christian College (FCC), an historic mission college founded in Lahore in 1864. Long one of the premier educational institutions in the Indian subcontinent, FCC was known as the Harvard of the Subcontinent, until an unfortunate experiment with nationalization in 1972. Now the college has been returned to its historic owners and runs both a Pakistani "college" (a school for 16-18 year old students), all male, and a Western-style 4-year coed liberal arts university. Our 6,200 students are 86% Muslim, and our university program is 34% women, with a goal of 50% female enrollment by 2016.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

GOAL ONE – Friends of Forman Christian College (FFCC) is committed to RAISING FUNDS FOR STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS, especially for those marginalized by reason of class, ethnicity, religion and gender.

GOAL TWO – Friends of Forman Christian College endeavors to RESPOND TO REQUESTS FOR FUNDS FROM THE LAHORE CAMPUS to assist with specific projects, programs and capital needs.

GOAL THREE - Friends of Forman Christian College SUPPORTS KEY PERSONNEL at Forman Christian College (FCC), especially the Rector of the College, so that they may be compensated fairly and adequately. FFCC also provides these key personnel with benefits crafted for persons serving overseas, including travel assistance, health care, pension programs and other benefits as appropriate. As an historic Christian mission college, some of these personnel may be regarded as missionaries, and some may be designated specifically in this way.

GOAL FOUR - Friends of Forman Christian College supports contributions to the campus, as well as its own expenses by MAINTAINING A PROFESSIONAL FUNDRAISING AND DEVELOPMENT OFFICE. FFCC is committed to a highly efficient operation that seeks to send as much as possible to the mission in Pakistan, while still compensating staff fairly and competitively, and seeking to order its internal like to continuously grow operations to generate yet more income each year for Forman Christian College.

Friends of Forman Christian College will encourage donors from around the world to participate in strengthening the programs and people of Forman Christian College by interpreting the college's work in the challenging context of Pakistan. Using student stories, college data and a combination of social and other electronic media, paper publications, public events and private consultation, FFCC will present the case for the college's unique program for individual transformation.

FFCC will also apply to foundation partners to help support its mission, and will seek new partners to join in the college's transformative work in Pakistan as well.

Working in concert with the college's administration in Lahore, Pakistan, FFCC will also design and lead campaigns to raise significant sums for several large campus building projects that are required for Forman to be the premiere Liberal Arts campus in Pakistan, as well as to grow its mission of being a peaceful place of tolerance, academic freedom, equity and opportunity, especially for the poor, for women and for Pakistan's Christian minority.

After ten years in existence, FFCC has built a base of loyal support from individuals, churches, foundations and institutions. These loyal donors believe in the mission of the college, and are our greatest resource. In the coming year, we will be maximizing the capability that already exists in our group of friends.

Although very small, FFCC has a very effective workforce which will grow with the addition of a new, highly experienced Director of Development. From day one, our goal will be to use the talents and gifts of our employees to the utmost to create support for the school, and value for our donors.

Because of the number of experienced Pakistan "hands" involved with FFCC, including the chairman of our Board of Directors, and our CEO, this institution has the ability to understand, explain and respond to the endlessly complex situation in Pakistan. In fact, both these individual have lived and taught on the campus. This understanding not only makes FFCC better able to explain Pakistan, but also assures our donors that their money will not disappear, but will be guarded by understanding of the social and economic situation in the country, and guided by our first-hand knowledge of the college's and nation's needs.

In the coming year, FFCC will increase its circle of friends, grow contributions by 18%, seek 5 new foundation partners, increase annual fund giving and provide more and better information to its friends and donors.
