On November 3, the APS 21st Century Campaign celebrated its kickoff at a special event on the evening before the November 4 Executive Board meeting. APS President John Hopfield led the program, which included the announcement of a $3.5 million goal and approximately $1.8 million having been raised to date. The campaign seeks corporate, foundation and individual gifts. APS programs benefiting from campaign funding include:

Volunteers leading the campaign include Gordon Moore, founder of Intel, as Honorary Chair; Craig Barrett, Chairman of Intel, as Vice Chair; William Brinkman, Princeton University, as Campaign Executive Advisor, and 31 Nobel Laureates.
