Campaign Challenge

Thank you to all Annual Fund December donors for making the Campaign Challenge a success. All gifts made between December 1 and December 31, 2019, helped unlock $500,000 in additional funding.

The Campaign Challenge helped end the Inquiry and Impact campaign on a high note and book the best December 31 finish yet for the Chicago Booth Annual Fund! Here are a few examples of how the challenge inspired alumni donors:

  • 227 first-time Chicago Booth donors participated in this challenge.
  • Thank you Stefan H., ’90 for your first gift to Chicago Booth.
  • 1,241 challenge donors increased their gift to the Annual Fund from last year.
  • David L.,’63, thank you for your dedicated, consecutive giving for nearly 50 years and increasing your gift this December.
  • Thank you Yiting P., ’05, Joseph S., ’78, and Emily H., ’14 for making your first leadership level gifts this December.
  • Charles A., ’68, thank you for making your second gift of the fiscal year in response to the Campaign Challenge.
