The Anniversary Campaign for Princeton - launched in commemoration of the University's 250th anniversary - raised a total of $1.14 billion from alumni, parents and friends, with 78 percent of all undergraduate alumni participating in the effort. These results make it the most successful fund-raising campaign in Princeton's history.

"With this extraordinary outpouring of generosity, today's Princetonians expressed their gratitude to those who came before them," said President Harold T. Shapiro, a 1964 graduate alumnus of the University, "and ensured that our campus will become an even brighter beacon of teaching and learning to future generations."
