Campaign for NC State

On October 28, 2016, NC State publicly launched the boldest fundraising effort in our proud history, The Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign, with a goal of $1.6 billion dollars in private support from the university’s remarkable alumni and friends.

This campaign will transform the Poole College of Management from a promising young star into a future-focused, world-class business school. We have a college campaign goal of $65 million, funding that will support students, faculty research, high impact programs, and innovative, technically rich education.

To ensure that happens, NC State needs you.

We’ve mapped out a big, bold future for NC State: increasing scholarships and fellowships, strengthening our faculty and their research, and extending education and opportunity to tens of thousands of students. Learn more about our campaign priorities.

Thanks a Million

In April 2018, Poole College’s donor community met the campaign goal of $65 million, more than three and a half years ahead of schedule. On June 30, 2021, Poole College hit and exceeded $100 million in private support from alumni and friends who believe, like NC State’s founders did, in the transformational power of higher education.
