The Charger Challenge
Progress Toward Our $120 Million Goal by the End of 2020

We reached our original goal of raising $100 million more than 18 months before the end of our Centennial year, raising significant funds to, among other important priorities, support student scholarships and the development of our Bergami Center for Science, Technology, and Innovation, a pioneering facility that is the centerpiece of our campaign.

Since surpassing our original goal, we have raised the bar even higher, increasing our goal to $120 million to invest in areas where we have already proven that we have great potential to excel: education in cybersecurity and the health sciences, and our athletics program, which has a rich tradition of success.

By contributing to The Charger Challenge, you are directly supporting our students now and for generations to come.

Thank you to our centennial sponsors
