University of Manitoba fundraising campaign brings in $626 million

The University of Manitoba’s Front and Centre campaign has far exceeded expectations.

The fundraising campaign, launched in 2015, started with a goal to raise $500 million for the school, but on Thursday the U of M announced it has brought in more than $626 million

“At the heart of this campaign are the donors who have put the work of University of Manitoba faculty and staff front and centre, magnifying their impact in our province and in communities around the world,” U of M president and vice-chancellor David Barnard said in a release.

“They are a reminder that even in such an exceptionally difficult time, we still have much to be grateful for.”

The school said donations came from more than 62,000 people living in 48 different countries, and one in five of the donors are U of M grads.
