It has been a remarkable fundraising year for William & Mary. The university continues its strong trek forward with two and a half years remaining until For the Bold concludes. As momentum builds to reach all three campaign goals — strengthened alumni engagement, 40 percent alumni participation and $1 billion — we always keep at top of mind our over-arching mission of advancing academic and athletics excellence and creating an environment in which opportunities and enriching experiences are available for all of our exceptional people.
Today, and in the months and years ahead, we will keep asking ourselves whether our people are better off than they were before the campaign first began. We are making great progress and strengthening our foundation thanks to the support of tens of thousands of alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends. From scholarships and faculty support, innovative research, study abroad, affinity- and alumnae-based opportunities to career and professional networking events, the campaign is a big reason the William & Mary community is feeling great impact.
Here are only a few of the highlights that we have celebrated over the last year.
