The campuses of the University of Missouri-Columbia and University of Missouri-St. Louis have set new fundraising records.

UCSL Chancellor Thomas George says $31.2 million was raised during the 2013-14 fiscal year — $10 million better than the previous year's fundraising total. The donations helped create 70 new scholarships, contributed nearly $6 million for a new building for the business college and $2 million for the St. Louis Mercantile Library.

MU also set a fundraising record, bringing in $164.5 million for the fiscal year, topping the previous record of $160.5 million set in 2008.
