Rising to the Challenge
In May 2013, Johns Hopkins publicly announced the launch of Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins, which aims to raise $4.5 billion to advance human knowledge, solve global problems, and enhance the student experience. Since the campaign began its "quiet phase" in January 2010, donors have contributed $2.38 billion, or 53 percent of the goal.
In January 2013, philanthropist and former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Engr '64, committed $350 million, divided between student aid and endowment for 50 Bloomberg Distinguished Professors promoting collaboration across traditional academic disciplines.
On June 30, 2017, the University will conclude the largest fundraising campaign in its history, expected to generate $753 million for financial aid and fellowships, and support for as many as 300 endowed professorships.Learn More
As the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health enters its second century as the pacesetter in public health, the science of public health has never been more powerful - yet preventable illness and injury still consume enormous human and financial resources.
To lead in addressing these problems, the Bloomberg School has set a campaign goal of $600 million, the highest of the University's 11 divisions (apart from Johns Hopkins Medicine). To date, we have raised 59 percent of the goal, with $31.8 million in outright gifts and $324.9 million in pledges. A successful campaign will enable the School to:
- Produce a new generation of professionals to create lifesaving programs
- Develop new faculty research initiatives to solve current and emerging problems
- Expand and update the School's infrastructure to keep pace with the demands of our work and prepare for new opportunities
- Broaden our base of supporters and reduce our reliance on government funding
