U of A Raises $100 Million in 2007 Fiscal Year

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville raised more than $100 million in the past fiscal year, besting last year's fundraising by $7.5 million.

The Fayetteville campus has a goal to raise $100 million annually until 2010.

Chancellor John A. White says it is impressive that the campus could raise the sum in a year without a major fund-raising drive.

The university's fiscal year ended June 30.

Of the $100 million, 53 percent came from corporations, 19 percent came from foundations, 12 percent was from individuals, 5 percent came from planned gifts and 11 percent came from other organizations.

UA vice chancellor G. David Gearhart says the contributions add to campus life at every level.
