During this past fiscal year, Temple University set a new record for fundraising which collectively surpassed $90 million dollars. The $90.6 million will go towards supporting many aspects of the University including students, faculty, research, community programs, campus improvements and much more.
This banner year’s success can be attributed to fundraising triumphs at various levels including the boost in alumni engagement, the increase in Conwell Society members, the maintenance in alumni donors, and the ability to sustain a high level of principal and major gift donors.
According to President Englert, “These results demonstrate the sustained strength and scope of Temple’s fundraising efforts as we expand our culture of philanthropy.”
Many schools benefited from this increase in donations including the Klein College of Media and Communication, which was renamed after Lew Klein in recognition of his six decades of teaching at Temple and the historic multimillion-dollar gift to the school from Lew and his wife, Janet.
Other schools were also recipients of an increase in funding this year. The Beasley School of Law and Boyer College of Music and Dance were both gifted $25,000 to acknowledge the highest increase in alumni participation over June 2016.
This new record has completely surpassed the previous 2015 record of $84.2 million and has the potential to exponentially grow in future years.
