Somehow I missed this Los Angeles Times story from last Friday about UC Santa Cruz officials’ efforts to raise more money.
From Larry Gordon:
UC Santa Cruz has raised $150 million in donations over the last four years and will seek another $150 million to support students, research and campus facilities, officials announced Friday.
In all, the $300-million target was unveiled and celebrated at a campus luncheon Friday attended by UC Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal and new UC system President Janet Napolitano.
Since July 2009, when the campus began the campaign’s “quiet phase,” more than 40,000 donors have pledged or contributed more than $150 million. Officials said they expect an equal amount to be raised over the next four or five years.
