Giving Priorities

A major, multi-year fundraising initiative, Leading Together: The Campaign for Washington University, has been announced to build on the university’s history and provide a strong foundation for the future.

The campaign’s four themes — preparing the leaders of tomorrow, advancing human health, inspiring innovation and entrepreneurship, and enhancing the quality of life — will be the focus of School of Medicine efforts during the campaign. To succeed in each of these areas, fundraising targets for five priorities have been identified:

  • To attract and retain outstanding faculty: $240 million
  • To attract a talented and diverse student body: $40 million
  • To advance the scholarship, research, and creative potential of students and faculty: $750 million
  • To further strengthen an exceptional teaching, research, and working environment: $40 million
  • To enhance excellence throughout the school by increasing unrestricted annual support: $30 million
