Hopkins to raise $4.5 billion -

Hopkins to raise $4.5 billion - Johns Hopkins announced Saturday a $4.5 billion fundraising goal — among the largest in the country — to help the university and health system address some of the world's most challenging issues, including water scarcity, education quality and city revitalization.

Contributors have already committed nearly $2 billion, including a $350 million pledge from New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, a Hopkins alumnus, in what is known as the "quiet phase" of the campaign, dubbed "Rising to the Challenge."
