Congratulations to the College of Public Health, the Fox School of Business and Athletics for bringing in the most donors during specific time periods of the day, winning the three time-based Challenges and each earning an additional $4,500.

The School of Media and Communication officially became the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication at a renaming ceremony on March 30 hosted by Bob Saget, a 1978 Klein College alumnus. The new name honors Lew Klein's distinguished career and decades of teaching service at Temple, and recognizes a historic, multimillion-dollar gift to the school from Klein and his wife, Janet. Their gift is supported by two additional seven-figure contributions from Temple Trustee, Steve Charles, KLN '80, and Trustee H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest and his wife, Marguerite.
Temple University's ninth OwlCrowd campaign will run from March 20 through May 4, featuring six projects from every corner of the Temple community. From providing clean drinking water, to supporting the Philadelphia Aphasia Community, to addressing literacy issues here in Philadelphia (and more), donors will have the opportunity to support the project that speaks to them.
OwlCrowd is Temple University's official crowdfunding platform. Selected projects are featured in the fall and spring semester during a 45-day cycle that fuels private fundraising revenue and benefits the university and its community.
