MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University has set a new fundraising goal of $1 billion.

The goal was announced on Saturday.

The university says the new goal was set after exceeding its original $750 million goal more than a year before its original deadline.

The university has raised $772 million through June 30. The fundraising campaign has been extended through December 2017 to see if the school can meet the $1 billion mark.

So far, campaign donations have established 524 student scholarships, 41 chairs and professorships and 181 funds to assist research efforts, among other things.
