Donors make big impact in December

December is the season for giving – and alumni and friends of SDSU gave in record fashion.
 
In the month of December alone, donors made gifts and pledges totaling $12,605,949. That equates to $406,644 every day that  month – ranging from $50 gifts for scholarships or the university’s highest priorities to gifts of stock and transfers from IRAs to a seven-figure gift of farmland in eastern South Dakota.
 
In all, 1,966 different donors made a gift in December.
 
It put an explanation point on one of the largest fundraising years ever at SDSU. Final fundraising totals for 2014 will be released in early February.
