President Hatch emailed this announcement to students, faculty and staff on July 13:
Dear Wake Forest Students, Faculty and Staff,
Wake Forest University is moving steadily toward its $1 billion Wake Will Lead campaign goal, having raised more than $700 million to invest in students, faculty and capital projects.
The University received more than $112 million in gifts and commitments this year.
I invite you to learn more about how the campaign is creating opportunity for students and faculty and transforming campus spaces.
Everyone on this campus and everyone who will be on this campus for generations to come will benefit from those who have stepped forward this year to generously support Wake Forest. A culture of philanthropic leadership will support Wake Forest’s signature strengths as the means to prepare today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders.
Nathan O. Hatch
