A total of 39,500 donors contributed $432 million in 7 years for The Campaign for TCU.
In an email sent to faculty and staff on Thursday, Chancellor Victor Boschini thanked staff and linked to the video below as a teaser to a full report coming in the fall.
The Campaign for TCU cites the following as its goals and priorities:
The university met its $100 million goal for scholarships before the 25th Annual Scholarship Dinner in April despite being behind two-and-a-half years ago, Don Whelan, Vice Chancellor for University Advancement, said.
In order to create a sense of urgency for fundraising, the university marketed the scholarship campaign separately and put a volunteer committee together, Whelan said.
This is the highest scholarship fundraising goal in the university’s history. Whelan said the last campaign, from 1992 to 1998, raised $31 million for scholarships.
