WKU Celebrates Fund Raising Milestone

By Amy Bingham | 

Western Kentucky University closed the 2002-2003 fiscal year on June 30 and topped the $12 million mark in cash donations for the second year in a row.

According to the university, Western was raising $3 million a year when Gary Ransdell began his presidency in 1997.

There has since been a 400 percent increase in giving.

Western will celebrate the conclusion of the "Investing in the Spirit" campaign at the President's Circle Gala on September 19.

The official totals will be announced at that time.
