Ole Miss athletics’ positive momentum continues with the announcement that the Forward Together campaign has reached $60 million.

“We have come a very long way in a relatively short period of time,” Danny White, UMAA Foundation executive director, said. “Literally thousands have stepped forward in support of the campaign. It’s been extraordinary.

“The Ole Miss faithful realize that this is a defining moment for our program. We have a tremendous opportunity to show our peers in the SEC and those throughout the country that Ole Miss is a premier program, dedicated to winning championships.”

With more than one third of the $150 million campaign goal raised since the launch on Aug. 9, 2011, Rebel supporters have demonstrated overwhelming support for the largest and most comprehensive fundraising campaign in the history of Ole Miss athletics.

“This campaign has galvanized the fan base,” Chancellor Dan Jones said. “We are grateful to see the flood of support that has poured in over the last six months. We are in the midst of a monumental investment in the future of our athletics program — one that demonstrates our unequivocal commitment to excellence. It’s great to witness the strength of the Rebel family moving forward together.” 

Contributions to the campaign can be made by committing to a CGA in select seating areas of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and/or the new arena. The Vaught Society and Five Star Fund provide opportunities for those interested in making an additional contribution or a donation without committing to a CGA.
