Summer 2017–The five-year campaign to secure $40 million for Truman entered its final year on July 1, 2017. With commitments of more than $35.2 million, the Pursue the Future campaign is in a strong position and poised to surpass goal by the end date of June 30, 2018.
In addition to a few recent major gift commitments, the past year has been significantly bolstered by strong financial support from alumni and friends around the country through regional campaign efforts.
As of June 2017, the campaign has hosted major events in seven of our 10 regional markets. Three more regional campaign events and a number of small gatherings
will continue to allow the University to maintain momentum through the final year of the campaign.
“I have been so encouraged by the strong support the campaign has received at each of our regional events. We continue to build a base of support for the future, and our alumni networks are being greatly expanded and strengthened.”
