Break Through, publicly launched just over a year ago, is already the most successful campaign in Caltech's history. In the first year of the public phase alone, gifts exceeded $400 million. And total contributions—over $1.4 billion—have surpassed the goal of Caltech's last campaign.
This support comes from new friends as well as those who know Caltech best: its faculty, trustees, students, alumni, staff, and Associates members. More than 10,000 donors have responded generously to the campaign's message that "a few can change the world."
