Campaign Successes

Posted in Departments, Summer 2020, The Ledger

In March, Drexel marked a milestone of more than $615 million raised during its most ambitious fundraising campaign, thanks in large part to generous alumni. The “The Future Is a Place We Make” Campaign is more than three-quarters of the way to its goal of $750 million since launching publicly in 2017. With help from the Campaign, the University is preparing students for academic and professional success, generating research and innovation that addresses urgent societal challenges, and sustaining civic engagement initiatives that benefit the Philadelphia community and beyond. Below are some Campaign achievements.
