AUBURN – The Auburn Scholarship Campaign, an initiative to build funds supporting and attracting top students to the university campus, has surpassed the $3 million mark.
The campaign, which began in fall semester 2010, offers alumni and friends a unique opportunity to help provide considerably larger scholarships to recipients.
AUBURN – Auburn University ended its “It Begins at Auburn” Campaign this spring by raising a record $608, 862, 727. By June of 2007, nine months ahead of schedule, the campaign had already passed its goal of raising half a billion dollars.
All colleges and schools and athletics exceeded their individual goals.
“This is the largest campaign in the university’s history, and the largest in the state’s history,” said Jay Gogue, Auburn University president. “I am proud of the Auburn family for making it such a huge success. Every gift, whether one dollar or one million dollars, shows the strong connection that our alumni, friends, staff and faculty feel for their university.”
AUBURN – Auburn University launched its third annual Faculty Staff Campaign on Wednesday, March 5, with the goal of improving on last year’s record-breaking 55 percent participation by faculty and staff with an even higher 60 percent participation.
Campaign volunteers will be asking their colleagues across the AU campus to help ensure the “It Begins at Auburn” Campaign really does begin at Auburn.
