The biggest philanthropic effort in UTMB history—our $450 million Working Wonders Campaign—officially concluded on Nov. 17, having exceeded the goal by raising $450,954,995 as of that date for various initiatives at our university. President David L. Callender announced the record-breaking total at a special celebratory gathering of UTMB’s Development Office staff. He characterized the campaign as “transformative” for UTMB, enabling UTMB to construct the new Jennie Sealy Hospital, to add 153 new endowments and to fund or sustain several major research programs on our campus. He congratulated the entire Working Wonders Campaign Team, offering special thanks to Betsy Clardy, vice president and chief development officer, and Maria Tabaracci, campaign manager. We extend sincere thanks to all faculty, staff and retirees who contributed $13.3 million to the effort through the Family Campaign.
