MORGANTOWN -

The WVU Foundation has two record fundraising years under its belt.

The foundation has reached its yearly fundraising goal of $80 million one month early. Alumni and other supporters donated cash and equipment to the university.

"It's really because of a number of things. We have great things happening at the university, we have a great foundation team, development officers who are presenting opportunities to donors," said Wayne King, President of the WVU Foundation. "And primarily because alumni and friends, corporations and foundations are excited about investing in all the good things happening at the university."

The foundation's "State of Minds" campaign is a multi-year effort to raise $750 million. As of March, it had met 84 percent of that goal.
