Free Press, Winnipeg Sun: U of M nearing Front and Centre goal
The University of Manitoba has raised $394.8 million in its historically ambitious $500-million Front and Centre capital campaign.
To be precise, $394,821,382 by Monday afternoon in the first campaign update since the official kickoff eight months ago, fundraising chair Paul Soubry said Monday afternoon.
The U of M is only about $100 million away from reaching an ambitious fundraising goal.
When the Front and Centre campaign hits $500 million, it will be the largest philanthropic investment in the history of Manitoba.
