Giant Steps donors

This year marked the fifth and final year of Giant Steps, Berklee's first-ever capital campaign. When we launched the campaign, we were advised to set a goal of $20 million. After much discussion, we set it for $35 million. It quickly became apparent that we could reach even higher, so we raised the goal to $40 million, and then to $50 million. In the end, we smashed even that goal, raising $54.5 million.
