|President Dennison and the UM Foundation led the most successful fund-raising campaign in Montana
history, raising more than $71 million in private money and exceeding the initial goal of
$40 million during the University's five-year Capital Campaign -- "Ensuring a
Tradition of Excellence."
fund-raising programs have grown steadily since 1990 -- including major gifts, planned
gifts and the Excellence Fund (the annual giving program).
In fiscal year 2000, the Foundation provided $8.8 million for
scholarships and awards, academics and institutional support, and building projects.
Nearly $1.8 million alone funded scholarships for UM students.
