On July 1, 2014, Bowling Green State University embarked on its largest comprehensive fundraising endeavor in its history by launching the Changing Lives for the World Campaign. The goal was to raise $200 million to serve as a lasting promise for the future of BGSU.

With the conclusion of this campaign on December 31, 2020, the University is poised to leverage this support to ensure we create public good and serve Ohio and beyond.

We cannot wait to share just how far we have come since six years ago . . .
