University of Cincinnati Passes $1 Billion Fundraising Goal Four Months Early

UC announced that it surpassed the $1 billion goal of its Proudly Cincinnati campaign, the most ambitious fundraising effort in the university’s history. In all, more than 91,000 individual and corporate donors – including alumni, staff, community partners, corporations, foundations and friends of the university – helped UC reach the $1 billion mark four months ahead of the campaign’s June 2013 deadline.

This achievement places UC among one percent of all U.S. colleges and universities to have ever raised $1 billion.

“Raising $1 billion is a truly remarkable achievement, and we should take a moment to reflect and celebrate and, above all, to thank those who have supported us so generously,” said UC President Santa J. Ono, PhD. “The key to this fundraising success, though, is not simply that we raised the money but the impact it will have on everything from experiential learning to opportunities to study abroad.”
