WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A fundraising campaign at Wake Forest University is quickly reaching its goal.

The school says in a statement that, as of June 30, Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest has raised more than $503 million of its $600 million goal for the Reynolda Campus. That’s 83 percent of the total, and it’s come two years earlier than projected.

Wake Forest publicly launched its campaign in October 2013 and, in conjunction with the Wake Forest Baptist Medical School’s campaign, intends to invest $1 billion in student, faculty and facility support.

According to the school, 78 percent of donors to the campaign have committed less than $1,000, up from 74 percent this time last year. Also, 54 percent of donors have given less than $250, up from 47 percent.
