MTU Donations

A Michigan Tech initiative is closer to reaching a fundraising goal set for next year.

The Generations of Discover Campaign is endeavoring to raise $200 million by 2013 and the month of November 2011 saw nearly $2 million in donations alone.

The University’s newsletter, Tech Today, reports that most of the donations were in gifts of less than $25,000 but just two donations totaled $65,000.

The largest contributions were a planned gift of $500,000 for an endowed scholarship and another gift of $1.1 million that is undesignated at this time.

The campaign had raised more than $157 million as of November 30th.
