University of Missouri announces largest ever fundraising campaign

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – The University of Missouri has officially begun the largest fundraising campaign in the school’s history.

The campaign seeks to raise $1.3 billion by 2020. Called “Mizzou: Our Time to Lead,” the campaign was officially announced Thursday, although it has raised $650 million during a silent phase.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the campaign will focus on increasing important centers and institutes, the endowment and building projects.

Tom Hiles, vice chancellor for university advancement, says campaigns leaders expect the effort to lead to five to 10 new centers or institutes with endowments of $10 million or more.

The campaign also will seek public and private partnerships to pay for new academic buildings, including new School of Music and Fine Arts buildings.
