The success of our campaign since 2000 — exceeding $100 million in private support — has proved what we can achieve as a community with the inspiring support of many alumni and friends.
Accordingly, we have set an ambitious new target of a further $100 million for a total of $200 million in the Foundation for Success Campaign (pdf). This new phase of our campaign will advance our goals of attracting first-rate faculty, fostering academic innovation aligned with the needs of our society, providing 21st-century teaching and research facilities, and offering our students the full range of academic and real-world learning experiences that will lead to future success.
During fiscal year 2014, the college and foundation received leadership gifts from Barry R. Feirstein '74, Carol L. Zicklin '61, Joel Zwick '62, Allen S. '64 and Linda '69 Minsky, the Kurz Family Foundation, and the estates of Lila Lustig '61, Victoria Isaacson '40 and Charles Everett Whipple. In the coming year, the campaign will continue to benefit from all of our alumni who, in partnership with such leadership gifts, make it possible to ensure Brooklyn College's continuous growth and our students' lifelong success.
