Virginia Commonwealth University had its most successful fundraising year to date in fiscal year 2018, raising $125.8 million.
The university’s previous top year was 2012, when a $45 million bequest from the estate of Arthur and Margaret Glasgow lifted the tally to $120.7 million.
The record-setting year comes amid the largest fundraising effort in the university’s history. The Make It Real Campaign for VCU began with a quiet phase in July 2012 and launched publicly in September 2016. It counts all funds raised through June 30, 2020.
