“All but the first fiscal year of the capital campaign saw annual fundraising totals in excess of $1 billion. Last year, Harvard raised $1.28 billion, up from $1.19 billion the year before. This year, only two other schools — Stanford and Columbia University — crossed the $1 billion threshold.
The University of California, Los Angeles and University of California, San Francisco rounded out the top five, with $787 and $730 million, respectively.”
Back in 2013, Harvard set out to raise $6.5 billion. Instead the school raised a total of $9.6 billion over five years. You can build a brand new campus with that kind of money.
