Supporting Brooklyn College in its mission to provide affordable access to excellent higher education

2006-2015 Foundation for Success Campaign Report

Beginning in 2006, with a public launch in 2008, the Brooklyn College Foundation embarked on the ambitious Foundation for Success Campaign (pdf). Under the leadership of President Karen L. Gould and the Brooklyn College Foundation Board of Directors, the Foundation for Success Campaign has come to an end in 2015.

With the generous support of our alumni and friends we have collectively raised over $200 million in support for the college. The funds raised have been used to give new meaning and substance to President Roosevelt’s vision of a college that will transform lives and “live through the generations.”
