MSU raises $1.83B
EAST LANSING — Michigan State University said its more than seven-year fundraising campaign brought in about $1.83 billion.
The Lansing State Journal reports more than 250,000 donors contributed to the Empower Extraordinary campaign, which reached its $1.5-billion goal in 2017.
The fundraising campaign started quietly in 2011 and was publicly launched in 2014 to help support building projects, scholarships and new endowed faculty positions. It wrapped up in December.
The East Lansing school said money raised for scholarships will assist an additional 3,500 undergraduates annually.
