Campaign Launch Celebrations


Friends and supporters joined together April 28, 2016, for a spectacular celebration to launch Break Through: The Caltech Campaign, an ambitious fundraising effort that aims to secure Caltech’s future as a source of transformative science and technology for the world.

For those who couldn’t attend—as well as for those who did and would like to revisit the evening—here are a few highlights. The photographs below capture special moments in a program that included inspiring remarks by students, trustees, and Caltech’s president, along with chamber music and jazz performed by Caltech scholar-musicians.


Continuing the festivities on Friday, April 29, more than 2,000 members of the Caltech community flocked to Beckman Mall to help the Institute celebrate Break Through: The Caltech Campaign.
