Technion Launches Unprecedented $1.8 Billion Global Campaign!

Ambition breeds success. You cannot set the bar low when you thrive for greatness and The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology lives by these words.

The Technion kicked off a $1.8 Billion Global Campaign at the Board of Governors meeting held in Israel this June. The remarkable effort will conclude in 2024 – in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the first Technion class. 

Over the next 6 years, the goal is to grow support and fund research, scholarships, labs and facilities at the Haifa, Israel-based Technion. Israel’s first university will continue to focus on diversity, sustainability, engineering, medicine, artificial intelligence, communication, quantum science and more.

“This campaign is truly global in nature,” said Prof. Peretz Lavie, President of the Technion. “Not only does it involve our societies around the world—including the UK, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, France, Israel, and the U.S.—but it will result in global benefits, such as better quality in soil, water, and air, easy-to-use sources for clean and renewable energy, engineering aid to developing countries, advancing breakthroughs in fighting cancer, and much, much more.”

Technion Canada proudly takes on the goal to raise $100 million of this Global Campaign.

Since the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s founding in 1912, students and faculty have been opening doors to better the world and help solve humankind’s most pressing problems. Technion is seeking vital support to keep ahead of the game and ensure their promising team has all the tools necessary to bring the world a better tomorrow.

This campaign will secure The Technion’s position and keep this leading institute at the forefront of world-changing and life-saving innovation for the next half of the 21st Century.
