You make a difference

Dear Friends of Drexel University,

“You give. Drexel delivers.” These four simple words are shorthand for the profound gratitude and abiding promise at the heart of the University’s relationship with our supporters.

In fiscal year 2014, alumni, benefactors and friends like you gave a record $85.5 million, exceeding our $60 million goal by 42.5 percent. Even more remarkable is that this milestone followed the conclusion of a $455 million capital campaign — the largest in Drexel’s history — well beyond our campaign goal and seven months earlier than anticipated. Your inspiring generosity fuels this University’s momentum.

It’s a great source of pride to know that you give because you believe in Drexel’s promise — to empower dynamic and fearless students with an education that matches their talents; to generate leading-edge translational research that tackles some of the world’s greatest challenges; and to strengthen communities and improve lives.

At Drexel, we strive tirelessly to deliver on that promise. Here’s how:

  • We apply a results-driven approach to research, teaching, and civic engagement.
  • We strategically invest in advancing academic excellence, improving student life, enhancing campus facilities, building global partnerships, and powering growth in our neighborhood, city and region.
  • We pioneer innovations in technology and entrepreneurship.
  • And we actively prepare graduates to excel in a rapidly changing professional environment.

Such accomplishments are possible because the Drexel community sets its path together. Drexel’s students constantly engage us with their entrepreneurial spirit and relentless quest for excellence. Our faculty inspire us with their passion for academic achievement and groundbreaking research. Our professional staff set the pace with their willingness to go the extra mile every day. And Drexel’s alumni and friends empower the University with their gifts of resources, ideas and time.

Thank you for a successful fiscal year 2014.This is an exciting time in Drexel’s trajectory as our promise as a great urban research university continues to soar. We will keep delivering — thanks to you.

Warmest regards,

Thank you.


John A. Fry
President
