During Family and Founder’s Weekend in September, President Joseph J. Helble ’82 invited alumni and friends to support and participate in life at Lehigh through GO Beyond: The Campaign for Future Makers. The extended $1.25 billion fundraising and engagement campaign helps fuel the new strategic plan, Inspiring the Future Makers.
“GO Beyond: The Campaign for Future Makers will continue to build a community of engaged philanthropists and volunteers,” said Helble. “It’s an ambitious goal, but I am confident that we can reach it together. I know that all of our alumni and family community recognize how important it is to support the success of our current and future students.”
Top priorities include scholarships, renovations and building projects, and the Lehigh Fund, which supports the university’s most immediate needs.
Helble is sharing his perspectives on the strategic plan and the GO Beyond campaign at a series of events across the country this fall and next spring.
“Endowed scholarships ensure that the best students can come to Lehigh, participate fully in experiential opportunities, and successfully launch their post-Lehigh lives,” said Associate Vice President and Campaign Director Deirdre Kwiatek. “And restoring and reimagining our buildings across Lehigh’s campuses will create the places where new generations of learning, research, and community can thrive.”
