MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A drive to raise $1 billion for West Virginia University is nearing its goal.

The West Virginia University Foundation reported Friday that the campaign had raised $898 million as of June 30th. That is nearly 90 percent of the ultimate target of the fund drive, called “A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia’s University.”

The campaign that runs through December 2017 has received giving from 76,227 donors. That includes nearly 33,000 alumni and nearly 5,500 corporations.

The foundation says the campaign is already having an impact. It says the giving has created 632 new endowed student scholarships, 24 endowed faculty chairs and funding to support research at WVU.
