BHSU Campaign Hits $32 Million Goal Reset to $40 Million
Thanks to commitments from numerous generous donors the BHSU Foundation’s Capital Campaign, Because of You Anything Is Possible, reached its $32 million goal ahead of schedule. This remarkable response led to a decision to increase the goal to $40 million.
Back in November 2017 Steve Meeker, Black Hills State University’s Vice President for University Advancement, announced a goal to raise $32 million, the university’s most ambitious campaign ever. The campaign includes $24.5 million for scholarships, $3 million for a fitness center addition to the Young Center, $2 million for an addition to the E. Y. Berry Library-Learning Center, and $2 million for athletics. Meeker disclosed that during the quiet phase, from 2014 through 2017, 4,699 donors had given $23.7 million, well on the road to $32 million.
After the announcement gifts continued to flow in—surpassing the original goal. If alumni and friends of Black Hills State University continue their strong support the new goal of $40 million dollars will be reached by December of 2019.
