Momentum Continues for 800th Anniversary Campaign
The fifth annual fundraising report on the 800th Anniversary Campaign has been released.
It shows that despite the economic downturn the Colleges and the University have maintained the momentum of this important fundraising campaign. At the end of the financial year 2009/10, the Campaign had raised £1,037 million from alumni and friends of the University.
The Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz said: "This report highlights the outstanding achievement of my predecessor, Professor Dame Alison Richard, in launching and driving forward this Campaign and reaching its £1 billion milestone two years early.
“The Campaign is continuing. In this time of uncertainty, visionary benefactors, both large and small, will be a crucial element in maintaining our ‘edge of excellence’ and will ensure that we continue to develop the people, knowledge and ideas that will transform tomorrow”.
The report is available to read online at www.campaign.cam.ac.uk/news/further/.
