Penn State campaign tops $1 billion mark

From Mirror staff reports

Penn State has raised more than $1 billion to support its fundraising campaign, “A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence.”

The milestone means Penn State is nearly two-thirds of the way to reaching its $1.6 billion goal by June 30, 2021, just over half way through the campaign.

Penn State joins institutions that have raised $1 billion or more in three separate campaigns, a university press release stated Friday.

The list includes Cornell, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, New York University, Stanford and the universities of Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington.

“With the help of supporters we can invest in digital infrastructure and experiences that go beyond the classroom to develop future global leaders,” the university’s statement read.
