The Youngstown State University Foundation has announced it has received more than $8 million to support its students for the 2019-2020 school year.

The fund of $8,545,275 will help an all-time high of 5,394 students, who will receive some money from the YSU Foundation.

"The YSU Foundation could not be more grateful for the commitment our donors have to YSU students," said Paul McFadden, the YSU Foundation President. "They want students to flourish and succeed while pursuing their dreams of higher education. The increase in giving could not have been possible without the kindness of alumni and friends."

The Foundation is currently in the fifth year of its seven-year "We See Tomorrow" campaign. Over $40 million in new endowed scholarships have been raised so far.
