Let's celebrate the Hopkins community — and continue Rising !

Thanks to you, Johns Hopkins has exceeded its historic $5 billion campaign goal. But we're not done yet.

Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins is already making an impact in every school and division across our campuses. See the full report here.

In record numbers, our donors are supporting new faculty awards to promote innovative research; seed funds to foster commercialization of discoveries; professorships and scholarships to attract and sustain even more great new faculty members and students; and centers to develop everything from student creativity in film to new thinking in international policy.

In fact, thanks to our more than 250,000 generous and dedicated donors, we have now exceeded our extended campaign goal of $5 billion, a record for Johns Hopkins and one of the top academic campaign totals across the nation.

Yet even with these successes, we still need to secure, by our June 30, 2018 campaign close, additional professorships and student financial aid to support our faculty, clinicians, and students and their world-changing work.

Please join us in Rising for the final months of the campaign. With your help, we can complete funding for our last remaining areas of need.  

More Endowed Professorships

Our goal in the Rising campaign is an ambitious one: to double the number of endowed professorships we can offer. Professorships are crucial tools for attracting and retaining great faculty members and clinicians — like Solomon H. Snyder Professor Michael Caterina and George J. Heuer Professor Allan Belzberg of the new Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery Pain Research Institute, at right — and helping them pursue groundbreaking new work. Your support will enable us to compete successfully for more of the world's best thinkers.

More Endowed Support for Students

Endowed scholarships and fellowships help us attract and sustain top undergraduate and graduate students — like Shaw Scholar and Ebola protective suit team member Gabriella Frid, Engr ’16, at left — regardless of their ability to pay. Endowed support enables more students to choose Johns Hopkins over offers made by peer institutions, hold fewer supplementary jobs while here, and graduate with less debt. Your support will help us make a Hopkins education accessible for even more deserving students.

Funding to Sustain Our Interdisciplinary Initiatives

The rise of interdisciplinary thinking at Johns Hopkins is already spreading new ideas and approaches across traditional academic divisions, energizing and cross-pollinating research and teaching. Our pan-institutional Signature Initiatives — 21st Century CitiesIndividualized HealthScience of Learning, and the Alliance for a Healthier World — have made real progress in launching innovative programs, like the "rapid response research" our students performed in the immediate aftermath of the Freddie Gray unrest in Baltimore, at right. Your support will help our initiatives become fully sustainable enterprises and resolve the enormous challenges they have taken on.

Funding for School Priorities

To further the great work now underway in our schools and divisions — in the arts and humanities, sciences and technology, medicine and public health, business and international affairs — we need your continued support. Together we can enable our faculty and students to build new research and education programs, like the new Aronson Center for International Studies at left, which develops new solutions for intractable world problems and trains new generations of experts. Help us foster important school priorities while increasing our impact in the world.
