uWaterloo fundraising campaign raises over $613 million

November 8, 2010

The University of Waterloo's "Campaign Waterloo" has ended with $613.2 million in donations, more than twice the original goal of $260 million. In what was informally dubbed "the puck in the net," $45 million was raised in the last 3 months before David Johnston left the role as president of the university to become Canada's Governor General. In all, more than 60,000 individuals made contributions to the campaign. Of those donors, 66 made gifts of $1 million or more. It is expected that uWaterloo will continue to raise $100 million each year. uWaterloo News Release | Waterloo Region Record
