You Made It Happen
Achieve! The Campaign for NC State was the most ambitious fund-raising campaign ever launched by North Carolina State University. This incredibly successful campaign, which raised more than $1.3 billion for NC State, is helping ensure our ability to transform lives today, and for generations to come, through teaching and research, as well as extension, engagement and economic development.
The goal for Student Support: $192 million.
The goal Achieved!: $205 million.
Contributions from 66,000 individuals and organizations mean we’re providing opportunities to aspiring minds from across the state and around the world with need- and merit-based scholarships and financial aid.
The goal for Research Support: $275 million.
The goal Achieved!: $500 million.
Research efforts at NC State unearth ways to add value to agriculture, improve public health, advance technology and engineering while enhancing the quality of life. Today, these areas have grown to include technical pursuits unimaginable a generation ago. Made possible by your visionary support, our forwarding-thinking research has paid off.
The goal for Outreach Support: $88 million.
The goal Achieved!: $114 million.
Outreach has long been an NC State tradition; after all, we are one of the nation’s finest land-grant institutions. The scope and promise of our achievements have never been greater — from plant genomics and biomanufacturing to sustainable forestry, from innovations in education to unique university, business and government partnerships.
The goal for Facility Support: $330 million.
The goal Achieved! $406 million.
While the adage to never judge a book by its cover still holds merit, when you’re a leading research university with a strong athletics program, you need to look your best. As our faculty, students, coaches, alumni and staff continue to elevate our national stature, so does our exponential need for top-notch facilities.
The goal for Faculty Support: $78 million.
The goal Achieved!: $73 million.
All the shiny and new, state-art-of the art facilities filled with the nation’s brightest students are meaningless without faculty who teach, create, discover and inspire. Because teachers and scholars are the foundation of a university of distinction, high-quality teaching and research are at the core of NC State’s academic enterprise.
The goal for Unrestricted Support: $37 million.
The goal Achieved!: $71 million.
True excellence and distinction requires nimbleness backed by adequate resources. One without the other often precludes seizing opportunities. For instances like these — newly emerging technologies and opportunities for partner collaboration, high-profile research projects — the university relies on flexible, annual funds.
