Good for K-State special campaign commemorative issue

Submitted by Marisa Larson

Ten years ago, the Innovation and Inspiration Campaign steering committee, comprised of K-State administrators and philanthropic volunteers, made a bold decision — to set a goal of raising $1 billion for K-State. The goal was more ambitious than anything previously undertaken by K-State, but confidence was high that the K-State family would come through.

Not only did the K-State family come through; they raised one-and-a-half times the original goal of $1 billion, which was later extended to $1.4 billion in 2017. This was made possible through the hard work and generosity of K-State alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the university. As the campaign comes to a close, please enjoy this stroll down memory lane of the past 10 years of campaign milestones and highlights.
