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.

The Mission of Friends of Forman Christian College (FFCC) is to provide support to Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) (FCCU) in Lahore, Pakistan. We partner with foundations, churches and individuals to secure funding for much-needed student scholarships, capital projects, and for Christian leadership & programming.

In the year ahead, FFCC will focus its work on three main objectives: Strengthening our Current Capacity; Developing New Donor Initiatives; Finishing Existing Projects. The goals under each main objective are listed below.

Strengthening our Current Capacity:
-Build our capacity in marketing and bench strength
-Retain 95% of existing donors, churches & foundations
-Empower & develop tools for Board members to engage their networks
-Continue to grow the endowment with a goal of $2M

Developing New Donor Initiatives:
-Identify, cultivate and engage at least 10 new churches and partners
-Identify and submit at least 4 new granting and foundation opportunities
-Seek to engage at least 10 US Alumni & Pakistani diaspora members
-Implement and test a pilot sponsorship program with at least 5 donors

Finishing Existing Projects:
-Assist FCCU to enable them to furnish & finish the Campus Center and the TSA women‘s hostel by Fall
-Assist FCCU to enable them to furnish & finish the Light of Hope extension by January
-Work to help fund and continue the NECHE Accreditation process

Friends of Forman Christian College will encourage donors from around the world to participate in strengthening the programs and people of Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) (FCCU) by interpreting the FCCU'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 funding required for FCCU 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 young women and for Pakistan's Christian minority.

After over twenty years in existence, FFCC has built a base of loyal support from individuals, churches, and foundations. These loyal donors believe in the mission of FCCU and are our greatest resource. In the coming year, we will be maximizing the capability that already exists in our group of friends, and endeavor to engage new donors as well.

Although small, FFCC has a very effective workforce. We utilize the unique talents and gifts of our employees to the utmost to create support for the school, and value for our donors. Our CEO brings over thirty years of executive leadership experience running organizations and overseeing mission personnel and operations.

Our Board of Directors likewise bring vast and unique hands on experience to FFCC. Three quarters of Board members have spent time on campus, and several have lived and taught on the campus for a semester or more, including the current FCCU Rector who lives full time in Pakistan. Thus, current Board members have the ability to understand, explain and respond to the endlessly complex situation in the country. This understanding not only makes FFCC better able to explain Pakistan, but also assures our donors that their money will only be used for its intended purposes, and guided by our first-hand knowledge of the college's and nation's needs.

Friends of Forman Christian College just recently completed a $20 million capital campaign largely directed towards the construction of a new Campus Center, the first of its kind in Pakistan. Funds were also provided for a new Media Center, a 95 bed woman’s dormitory, new housing for multiple faculty on campus, and a new educational building for the Light of Hope School which will double enrollment capacity. Last year, FFCC assisted the campus in awarding $1.34 million in total scholarships which is a 15% increase from the previous year, as the campus saw over 1,000 students receive degrees. FFCC also provided full support for the Chaplaincy, the Christian Life Program, and multiple undergraduate and graduate Christian Studies programs.
