Connect: A Black Alumni Leadership Initiative
Connect grew out of the desire of black alumni to create a focused fundraising effort and to be more involved in shaping the University’s future.
This alumni-led effort exceeded both its goals at the end of Aspire, raising $6.76 million and achieving 66.6 percent cumulative participation. After surpassing its original target of $4 million and 60 percent participation in the summer of 2011, volunteers set their sights on $5 million and 65 percent participation. By campaign's end, the effort had raised $6.76 million with 66.6 percent participation.
Connect continues to engage black graduates more deeply in the life of Princeton as leaders, volunteers, and donors.
