OSU/Cascades easily met its goal of raising at least a million dollars by the end of June. The school actually brought in $1.5 million in the fundraising drive aimed at showing the state that Central Oregon is serious about establishing a four year university here. More than 50 donors stepped forward in the drive that was launched in May. The initial goal was 40 gifts of $25,000. As of June 30th, 54 people and businesses made commitments of at least $25,000 dollars each. A combination of state funds, loans and private support will be required for the campus expansion.
