Campus Campaign

Every year, our BGSU family comes together to support our students through Campus Campaign.  BGSU is known for its commitment to helping students succeed both within and beyond the classroom. As today’s students face an increasingly complex and competitive world, it is imperative that BGSU continues to provide diverse activities, innovative academic programs, and a dynamic mix of learning opportunities to position our students as tomorrow’s leaders.

The BGSU Campus Campaign, a University-wide effort to support institutional initiatives, provides resources to engage, challenge and prepare students for a meaningful future. Now in its second decade, the Family Campaign has raised more than $13 million to benefit students, programs and initiatives. The campaign spans our fiscal year and includes any gifts made from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.

All gifts are important and very much appreciated, especially in today’s challenging times when the University is experiencing declining state support.
