"We are so thankful for the commitment, support, and generosity of our donors, and it is with deep gratitude that we celebrate this milestone of our Gift of Love Capital Campaign fundraising efforts," expressed Kathryn Coyne, president and CEO of AMC, in an organizational release.1

"Our deep appreciation and thanks go to our many generous benefactors, who understood the need to expand and modernize our facility and responded to the challenge," said Robert Liberman, board chair, Schwarzman Animal Medical Center, in the release.

"For over a century, the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center has been a trailblazer in the veterinary field, and with a new hospital AMC will continue to lead the way, delivering the highest level of compassionate and collaborative patient care, driving pioneering research, educating the next generation of industry leaders, and discovering new diagnostic, prevention, and treatment methodologies that impact both animal and human medicine," he continued.1

A final $5 million gift from Chris and Trustee Bruce Crawford helped Schwarzman Animal Medical Center hit its $100 million goal. "We have supported the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center for many years because of the unparalleled care provided to animals," commented Chris and Bruce Crawford. "We make this gift in honor of retiring President & CEO Kate Coyne, whose vision and leadership inspired this campaign, and made this dream a reality."

Additional supporters of the Gift of Love Capital Campaign include The Denise and Michael Kellen Foundation, Elaine and Ken Langone, Katharine Rayner, Emilia Saint-Amand Krimendahl, the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, Lisa and David Schiff, Charles and Ann Johnson, and Stephen and Christine Schwarzman—their record-setting $25 million donation was the largest in AMC's 113-year history. There were other generous donors contributed to the campaign at all levels.

According to the release,1 throughout the last 10 years, AMC's caseload has grown by more than 50 percent. The donations to the Gift of Love Campaign will transform the hospital facility, first built in 1960, and include:

  • New state-of-the-art surgical suites

Construction is slated for completion in 2024.
