Tulane University again smashed its fundraising record, raising more than $150 million in the 2017–18 fiscal year, exceeding last year’s record-breaking year by nearly $25 million.
Generosity takes audacity, and a record 25,000 of Tulane’s family of alumni, parents and friends have taken up the challenge of the “Only the Audacious” campaign with characteristic boldness. Since its launch on Dec. 8, 2017, the historic $1.3 billion campaign has rapidly gained momentum, shattering previous records and gaining more Tulane supporters than ever in the university’s 184-year history.
Almost 6,000 new donors joined in making a tremendous impact campuswide on students, campus research and faculty.
President Michael A. Fitts cheered the achievements. “I am so proud that so many members of our community have taken up the challenge posed by ‘Only the Audacious’ and rallied around the campaign. Together, their heartfelt passion will bring about an even stronger, even bolder Tulane, and it’s so exciting to be a part of that transformation.”
