Illinois State University announced they surpassed the $150 million target set in their Redbirds Rising campaign 13 months ahead of schedule.
To date, they say they have raised $154.4 million.
“This is a remarkable achievement,” Illinois State University President Larry Dietz said in a statement. “One made possible by alumni and friends who believe in the quality of the ISU experience and have demonstrated their confidence in our direction through their investment in the University.”
The fundraiser began in 2013 but became public in 2017, and will fund scholarships and leadership programs.
They will continue the program through June 2020.
