William & Mary completed its boldest fundraising campaign yet, with $1.04 billion raised, ties among alumni and alma mater strengthened and its status as the No. 1 public university for alumni participation cemented several years in a row. For nearly a decade, the For the Bold campaign infused revolutionary ideas and bold initiatives into our 327-year-old institution of higher learning. The campaign led to wide-ranging transformations across the university and new opportunities and experiences for generations of students, faculty, alumni and staff.

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.
