For the Bold / The Campaign for William & Mary

“Our generous donors to the For the Bold campaign have invested in efforts that push us beyond the status quo and into bold new ventures to increase equity, inclusion, grit and creativity.”

–Katherine A. Rowe | President, William & Mary

W&M Raises $1.04 Billion

William & Mary completed its boldest campaign yet, with $1.04 billion raised. For the Bold infused revolutionary ideas and initiatives into our 327-year-old university, which transformed W&M and created new opportunities for students, faculty, alumni and staff.

No. 1 in U.S. for Alumni Participation

The university’s status as the No. 1 public university for alumni participation was cemented several years in a row. W&M had a 23.6% alumni participation rate in 2011. Today, it is 30%. This places W&M first among publics in the U.S. and 17th among privates.

Alumni Strengthen Bonds

For the Bold strengthened ties among alumni and alma mater. The university saw the number of alumni participating in new and creative offerings — including career and networking opportunities — triple since the start of the campaign.

Thank You

This is a historic moment for William & Mary. After nearly a decade of transforming lives, advancing positive change and forging a greater sense of community, we are celebrating the successful conclusion of our For the Bold campaign.

Our generous donors — alumni, students, faculty, parents, staff and friends — have galvanized behind William & Mary like never before and helped us achieve what no other university of our size has been able to do: raise $1 billion, solidify our status as the No. 1 public university for alumni participation and strengthen the bonds between alumni and alma mater.

Our shared sense of purpose has been the driving force for good over the span of our campaign and will continue to be the common thread that binds us long after the conclusion of For the Bold.

Thank you for your generosity, for strengthening the mission and values of the Alma Mater of the Nation and for allowing us to truly be a university for the bold.

Sue Hanna Gerdelman ’76
Chair, For the Bold
