The Schulich Alumni Challenge as part of the Leading Change Campaign was a complete success. From November 1st, 2016 and June 30th, 2017, the Challenge raised over $5 Million from an impressive 734 alumni who gave back to their alma mater.
All donations from alumni had double the impact as they were matched by the Schulich Foundation bringing the total amount raised to over $10 Million for the new Graduate Study and Research Building.
“This is an incredible achievement and demonstrates the strong pride and generosity of our Global Alumni Network,” said Dean Dezsö J. Horváth. “This opportunity would not have been possible without the incredible generosity, confidence and support of our distinguished benefactor, Seymour Schulich OC, and the Schulich Foundation.”.
The Leading Change Campaign is the school’s boldest and most ambitious fundraising and alumni engagement campaign initiative. The campaign will run until 2021, and is seeking to raise $50 million to support campus expansion, research and discovery, innovative thinking, student success and alumni engagement.
