Go Orange. Give Back. Go Camels!

Let’s Go Camels! Last year, the Campbell community of alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and students united to make a difference in the lives of current and future students with hundreds of gifts to every area of our great university on the third annual Campbell Giving Day.

On February 3, 2021 we are calling upon our supporters everywhere to once again Go Orange, Give Back, and Go Camels!

Proudly put on your Campbell orange and make a gift of any size. Then share why you give on social media, using the hashtag #campbellgivingday, leading others to do the same.

Your participation makes a big impact!

GOAL: 1,887 gifts, $1 million

In honor of our university’s founding year, we’re striving for 1,887 gifts in just 24 hours.

“To the Stars” Challenge

Campbell’s motto is Ad Astra Per Aspera, meaning “to the stars through difficulties”. Our university has seen its share of difficulties over its 134 years. However, together with the support of faithful friends, we continue to overcome challenges and thrive.

Bob Barker, class of 1965, has given $500,000 to the Fund for Campbell and he wants 1,887 alumni and friends to join him and help match his gift with another $500,000 raised on giving day.

Will you help us meet the challenge?!
