Montana State University announced Tuesday it has completed the most successful fundraising campaign in its history, raising more than $413 million in eight years.

“We are quite thrilled and humbled,” said Chris Murray, president and CEO of the MSU Alumni Foundation. “It’s really a testament to our alumni and donors who are passionate about MSU.”

MSU and the foundation, its nonprofit fundraising arm, launched the public phase of the “What It Takes” campaign in September 2015. The goal set then was to raise a record $300 million by Dec. 31, 2018, a goal that seemed ambitious to Murray at the time.
