Subject: UA's Largest-Ever Fundraising Campaign Kicks Off Friday

Date: April 8, 2014

Friday will mark the official launch the largest comprehensive fundraising campaign in University of Arizona history. The campaign will aim to raise more than $1 billion to support the ambitious goals outlined in the University's Never Settle strategic plan.

To celebrate, the University will host a campaign kickoff event starting at 2 p.m. with talks and tours across campus. Participants will learn about the University's people, its laboratories and its creative spaces, and also hear about the UA's philanthropic priorities. A full schedule of talks and tours can be found here (PDF).

The kickoff will include the Interactive Expo of Excellence, to be held on the UA Mall just east of Old Main at 4:30 p.m. The expo gives members of the UA and Tucson communities the chance to meet UA researchers and students who are excelling in their fields.

At 6:30 p.m. the University will officially announce the public campaign and follow it up with a fireworks display. At 7:30 p.m., the band American Authors will perform at Spring Fling, one of the largest student-run carnivals in the nation, which is happening at the east end of the UA Mall.

More information about the upcoming campaign launch is available in this Lo Que Pasa article.
