What is Portland State's Building Our Future Capital Campaign?

Portland State's Building Our Future Campaign is a concentrated effort to raise $100 million in private support for Portland State University students, faculty, buildings and programs. Most colleges and universities conduct campaigns as a way to focus their fundraising efforts around a series of goals and priorities in a set time frame-typically seven years. Many campaigns are called "capital" campaigns because much of the goal is dedicated to construction and renovation of buildings or "capital" projects. At Portland State our campaign includes capital projects but it is comprehensive in nature, encompassing goals like scholarships, professorships and programs for every academic area at the University.
