We did it! Today we have half a billion reasons to say ‘ray Bucknell — and thank you.

Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends of Bucknell made more than $500 million in gifts and pledges that will quite literally shape the future of the University. In the coming months, we will share more details about the historic success of the WE DO Campaign. | Read about the successful conclusion of the WE DO Campaign.

Although we reached our ambitious goal and will celebrate together this fall, our work is far from done. This is just the beginning of a new era for Bucknell University — a time of renewed energy, purpose and confidence as we move ever forward.

Together, we're making Bucknell stronger every day. Together, we're ensuring that generations of the best students will have access to a Bucknell education and extraordinary opportunities that William Bucknell himself could not have imagined. Together, we did, and together, we will continue to do!

My best,

John C. Bravman
