$215,294,636 for Front and Centre

On Saturday, October 3 in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Investors Group Field, the University of Manitoba publicly launched Front and Centre: the campaign for the University of Manitoba during an exhilarating halftime show at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers game. University president David Barnard, campaign chair Paul Soubry, and campaign team member – and retired NFL star – Israel Idonije announced the total raised so far. The $215,294,636.30 total is a significant milestone on the road to the campaign’s ambitious and transformative $500 million goal.

The $215 million announced is a huge step towards the $350 million expected to be raised through private donations from individuals and foundations. The university is also working with the provincial government to secure an additional $150 million towards the campaign’s priorities of teaching and learning, discovery, and community engagement.

The momentum that Front and Centre has right now continues to build, with thousands of donors having already taken their place in supporting the campaign.
