Over the last year, William & Mary celebrated many extraordinary milestones thanks to the loyal and generous support of donors. More than 42,000 Tribe faithful collectively helped the university raise an unprecedented $143.1 million — including more than $68 million for scholarships. What’s more, the number of alumni supporting their alma mater increased and alumni engagement continues to be strengthened.
In September, William & Mary rose to new heights by kicking off its For the Bold campaign in New York City against the backdrop of the Empire State Building shining brightly in green and gold. The power of Tribe Pride can be felt across the globe and will continue to grow stronger as the university takes the campaign into other cities around the world in the months and years ahead.
Remarkably, the university continues to break fundraising records and the reason is simple — alumni, parents and friends believe William & Mary is a good investment. Donors are giving to areas they are most passionate about and helping to raise the level of excellence in the classroom and on the field. Generations of talented students and faculty will feel the impact of their gifts for all time coming and the nation and world will be a better place for it.
