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.
