USM Foundation raises over $15 million to benefit the university

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The University of Southern Mississippi Foundation raised $15,560,117 during the 2013-2014 fiscal year, making it the second highest fundraising year in history.

Donations ranged from small amounts to seven figures but every dollar counts. The donations are used to fund various campus projects and organizations, scholarships, and endowments.

The leadership of Dr. Bennett, USM's president, along with help from the Foundation's Board of Directors are credited for this past year's success. The USM Foundation looks forward to another successful year and hopes for it to be the highest fundraising year yet.
