Announcing Mason Now: Power the Possible

People Mentioned in This Story

Fellow Patriots, 

A new chapter in the Mason story began last week. 

Joined by students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and elected officials from around the Commonwealth, we announced the launch of Mason Now: Power the Possible — a $1 billion campaign for George Mason University. 

Why this campaign, and why now? Because Mason was created for these times. Because we can meet new challenges with new thinking and new folks at the table. Because we’re not afraid to question the status quo. And if we are to reach our full potential, we need a level of financial support that matches our ambitions. 

We invite you to visit the Mason Now campaign website to view the campaign video and to learn more about the campaign priorities, which focus on: 

  • Student success 
  • Research 
  • Innovation 
  • Community 
  • A sustainable future 

As with all things Mason, this campaign is about — and will depend on — our community. We all have a role in making Mason Now a success, and we’ll be sharing more about how you can get involved in the months ahead. In fact, we’ll have a major campaign announcement coming very soon. 

Yes, our goal is ambitious. Yes, it’s audacious. And yes, it will require determination and grit. 

That’s what makes it Mason. 

All Together,
