$126M+ Haul Breaks Tulane University Fundraising Record

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tulane University in New Orleans has broken its fundraising record, taking in gifts and commitments that exceeded $126 million during the last school year.

         The school says more than 20,000 alumni, parents and friends donated during the 2016-17 financial year, the best year for donations in Tulane's 183-year history. The $126 million-plus in new gifts and commitments bested Tulane's five-year average by $20 million.

         The increased giving comes as Tulane reports that its student applications also have grown.
