CSU capital campaign concludes

Columbus State University (CSU) recently completed its First Choice Comprehensive Capital Campaign, raising roughly $120 million from 8,000 alumni and community donors since the campaign began in 2012. Nearly 40 percent of donors were alumni who gave more than $17 million and 52 percent were non-alumni individuals who contributed more than $55 million. Corporations and foundations accounted for 8 percent of the donors and contributed approximately $44 million. Among the corporate supporters were Synovus, TSYS, Pezold Management Group and W.C. Bradley Co.

The campaign is also estimated to make a $295 million annual economic impact on the regional community.
