YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown State University officials report a record year for fundraising.

During a news conference this afternoon, University officials revealed that this year's campaign has raised more than 10 million dollars this fiscal year through private donations.

Scott Evans, Vice President of University Advancement attributed the success to the enthusiasm and support of Dr. Cynthia Anderson, who will retire as University President on June 30th.

Dr. Anderson said, "As I leave the university, I can't think of a better way than to thank the many donors, alumni, friends, who have supported this university. Our student who have done so very much for us and made us look good in every way. So please know your generosity is both overwhelming and humbling."

The majority of the donated dollars will go to scholarships, while other donated money has been restricted to capital projects and initiatives such as academic programs and athletics.
