Grounded Visionaries Campaign Update: We Did It!

04112018_Accomplished_Ambition_Campaign_Close_Celebration_243---websiteDear Alumni and Friends,

Over the past four years, the Grounded Visionaries campaign has brought together people from around the world who care deeply about the GSD, including students, faculty, alumni, donors, collaborators, and friends. Our Campaign goal of $110 million was, by far, the largest fund raising goal in the School’s history—an audacious goal.

Now that we have reached the conclusion of the Campaign (June 30, 2018), we are thrilled to share that we have surpassed our ambitious goal by raising over $160 million!

Thank you to the many alumni and friends who have generously supported the GSD. Together, we set a bold vision for the institution focused on our passion to re-imagine the built environment; our fascination with the intersection of art, science, research, and action; and our determination to develop creative solutions to some of the most challenging issues of our time. 2017-2018 was also a strong year of support for the GSD’s annual giving funds with over $800,000 raised!

In the coming weeks, you will hear more about the impact of the campaign and those who contributed to it. In the meantime, we look ahead to the bright future you have helped to shape for our faculty and students and the spaces and communities they will create and transform around the world through the incredible power of design.

With much gratitude,
John K. F. Irving AB ’83, MBA ’89 and Phil L. Harrison AB ’86, MArch ’93
