CSU has set a new record as it raised $111.6 million in private funds for the 2011-12 fiscal year. After a fundraising campaign for several years, the money means more scholarships and other changes for Colorado State University.

“CSU continues to buck the national trends for fundraising, and Colorado State’s unparalleled single-campus fundraising numbers make a strong statement about the tremendous support the university enjoys from alumni and friends,” Brett Anderson, vice president for University Advancement, said in a news release. “Colorado State is extremely grateful to all of the generous donors who are committed to supporting the university’s world-class academic programs and research endeavors.”
