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.”
