OSU/Cascades officials are cautiously optimistic they'll meet their fundraising goal of getting $1-million by the end of June.  Last month the college started soliciting donations of $25,000 from 40 donors.  This is to show the community is behind making OSU/Cascades a four year university.  OSU/Cascades Vice President Becky Johnson says they're close to reaching their goal and she feels that will help their case to get more state funds.

 

“And having these donations in hand when we go there on August 3rd.  If we can tell them that in six weeks, the Central Oregon community contributed $1-million to this.  I think that's going to make a statement.”  OSU/Cascades leaders are scheduled to appear before the Oregon university system on August 3rd to request $16-million.
