Record-Breaking Campaign Takes Drexel to New Heights
With the Campaign for Drexel, we challenged ourselves to raise $750 million, optimistic that our alumni, partners and friends would cheer our ambitious vision for the future of Drexel. They did that and more, eclipsing our aspirations for a total of $806.6 million.
We completed our multi-year The Future Is a Place We Make campaign this year, confident that our goals are in reach: Successful students; impactful research; pioneering teaching; and a focus on equity, community and partnerships.
The Campaign got off to a strong start in 2013 and maintained momentum through June 30, 2022, exceeding the University’s goal, more than six months ahead of schedule.
Chief among our roster of contributors were 42,000 engaged alumni who provided generous gifts, volunteered their time, championed new co-ops within their workplaces and personally mentored current students. This year also saw the publication of “A Legacy to Share,” a book of inspirational personal stories produced by the Drexel Black Alumni Council.
On a single day of giving last May, 6,253 individual donors contributed more than $1 million in total, breaking single-day participation records we proudly set one year before.
