For All Kind: the Campaign for Carolina raised more than half of its dollar goal ahead of schedule, propelled by a record-breaking fiscal year 2018.
The campaign had received $2.23 billion as of June 30, 2018; it aims to raise $4.25 billion by Dec. 31, 2022. The pace put the campaign ahead of schedule by more than eight months and gave it the strongest momentum of any campaign at a public university in the Southeast and among the strongest in the nation. Almost two-thirds of Carolina’s schools and units (17 out of 26) were also ahead of schedule in reaching their dollar goals.
The University met the campaign milestone thanks in large part to receiving $617 million in commitments in fiscal year 2018. The total, a fourth straight fiscal-year record, exceeded fiscal year 2017’s $543.3 million by 14 percent and marked the first time in history that Carolina has topped $600 million in commitments. Almost 70,000 donors made gifts.
