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.
