Capital Campaign May 2004: Volume 1, Number 2

Alumni Build a Stronger UCSD


Since the launch of the campaign in July 2000, more than 21,000 alumni have shown an unwavering commitment to UCSD, contributing in excess of $12 million. In fact, an impressive thirty percent of the donors to The Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What’s Next are UCSD alumni.

Whether creating endowed scholarships and fellowships for the students following in their footsteps or making gifts each year to the University’s Annual Fund, donations from alumni at all levels make a lasting impact on campus. Together, our alumni are making a stronger UCSD for future generations.

UCSD graduated its 100,000th student this June, adding to a growing and powerful base of alumni. By making a donation to UCSD, alumni can play an important role in shaping their alma mater and keeping it at the forefront of academic and research excellence. Donors can designate their gifts to help support students and faculty, expand academic programs, fund research endeavors and strengthen innovation funds to meet the highest priority needs.

Alumni gifts to the University—whether annual gifts or pledges payable over five years—will also help make The Campaign for UCSD a success. To date, the campaign has
generated more than $746 million toward the $1 billion goal, but there is still more than $254 million to raise before the campaign concludes in June 2007. To learn more about how you can invest in the future of UCSD, please visit us online at www.campaign.ucsd.edu or call 858-534-1610.

More than 21,000 alumni—such as Janice Durbin Chaffin, ’78, Dana Chaiken, ’91, and Erik T. Engelson, ’82, M.S. ’84—have made donations to UCSD since the launch of The Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What’s Next in July 2000.
