Wake Will campaign reaches half-billion dollar mark

A message from President Nathan Hatch to the Wake Forest Community.

Two years earlier than projected, Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest has surpassed the half-billion dollar mark in total campaign commitments.

The University received over $100 million in gifts and commitments between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015, following our public launch of the campaign in October 2013.

When we launched Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest, we did so with great ambition and transformational dreams. You can read more about the impact of this tremendous milestone in a related WFU news story, in a Q&A with Campaign Director Jay Davenport on Inside WFU, and on the campaign website.

As we enter year three of Wake Will, I would like to thank our entire campus community for the time, energy and resources you have committed to advance the work of Wake Forest thus far. Your support of Wake Will has moved us closer to fulfilling our mission, and I look forward to continuing the work together.
