The Foundation has increased their campaign commitment to $10 million for student financial aid, faculty support, and Harris’ new building, the Keller Center, but we need your help to make it happen.

The Irving Harris Foundation has challenged Harris Public Policy, and we need your help to meet our goal. In winter 2012, the Irving Harris Foundation increased their campaign commitment to $10 million for student financial aid, faculty support, and Harris' new building, the Keller Center. The gift, however, is contingent on Harris securing a broad base of support from alumni and friends between now and the end of the University campaign.

We need 1,000 donors to either make their first gift of $100 or more, or to increase their largest previous gift by at least $100.

How it Works

  • All gifts must be received before the end of the campaign
  • Goal: 1,000 gifts, counted as follows:
    • $100 first-time gifts
    • $100 increase over donor's largest previous gift

“The Fellowship has made it possible for me to focus on my studies and not have to worry about finding and working a side job. Furthermore, it has applied a good pressure on me to make sure that I always put my best foot forward in everything that I do at Harris. I am extremely appreciative of the generosity of the Harris family and honored to have received the scholarship.”

Progress as of July 1, 2016:

  • First time gifts: 271
  • $100 increase in gifts: 256
  • Total: 527
