Dear Oxy community:
We write once again with pride, gratitude and excitement to thank you and report the latest progress on The Oxy Campaign For Good for the 2021-22 academic year. Moved by the results we have achieved and excited about what the future holds, we are particularly grateful to you, Oxy’s remarkable community, for your continued support of our students and faculty, and for the many ways in which you are engaged with the College as volunteers, as donors, and as participants in the life of the College.
We are thrilled to share that the campaign surpassed its initial $225 million target with a full year remaining in the campaign. As of June 30, 2022—the close of Oxy’s fiscal year—more than $231.2 million had been raised in gifts and commitments to the campaign, including $39.6 million over the last 12 months alone. Gifts to the Oxy Fund, which supports the College’s current operations, reached more than $5 million, including $1.5 million donated during the third annual Day For Oxy.
Given this remarkable record of generosity, we are excited about building on this momentum in the last year of The Oxy Campaign For Good. In the coming months, we hope to endow even more student scholarships, make much-needed renovations to Norris Hall of Chemistry, and enhance support for students and faculty in the Music, Media Arts and Culture, Computer Science, and Economics departments.
We appreciate your generosity and hope that as you review the remarkable results of the past year outlined in this Contributors Report, you share not only our sense of accomplishment but our sense of optimism about what the final year of The Oxy Campaign For Good can mean for Occidental.
With sincere thanks,
