STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – The largest fundraising campaign in the history of Oklahoma State University has raised more than $1.2 billion.

More than 100,000 individuals and corporate partners participated in the campaign that wrapped up on Dec. 31. That includes nearly 45,000 first-time donors to OSU.

The campaign kicked off in December 2007 and was publicly unveiled in 2010. In April 2013, university officials announced the campaign had exceeded its $1 billion goal but the effort wouldn’t end until its scheduled completion date.

Gifts and pledges aided many programs on all five campuses in the OSU system, but the gifts are providing significant new resources in support for students, faculty members, facilities and programs.

Kirk Jewell, president of the OSU Foundation, says the campaign will impact future generations of students.
