Mike Krzyzewski, Founder and Board Chair of the Emily Krzyzewski Center, announced the public launch of a three year, $15 million fundraising campaign for the Center at a special launch event held on Wednesday, May 30. Named the Game Changer Campaign, this initiative will support Center operations, enhance educational programs, ensure the organization’s long-term sustainability, and add a 4,500 square foot addition to the facility. “We could not be more excited about the Game Changer Campaign,” shared Emily K Center Executive Director Adam Eigenrauch, “This campaign represents an important step in the growth of the Center and will allow us to provide enhanced programming to hard-working Durham students for years to come.”

Mike and Mickie Krzyzewski also announced their personal commitment toward the campaign, a $3 million gift, which represents their largest, single philanthropic contribution ever. “The Emily Krzyzewski Center is incredibly important to Mickie and me. It is named after my mom, and she was the best person I knew. Amazing things happen at the Center and Mickie and I are thrilled to be able to make this commitment and this gift,” said Krzyzewski.

As of May 30, the Center has raised $8 million toward the $15 million campaign goal. Efforts to raise the balance will continue over the next two years. Chairing the campaign steering committee are Durham community members Jane Dimmig and Wayne Holden.
