Marquette University has raised another $47 million over the past eight months toward its $750 million “Time to Rise” campaign goal.

Marquette went public in April with the campaign, for which it has been privately raising funds since 2016. At that time, university officials said it had already raised $453 million.

On Thursday, president Michael Lovell said the campaign had surpassed the $500 million milestone, leaving $250 million left to raise.

To date, more than 51,000 donors have given to the campaign, including 43% who made their first-ever gift to the university. The university has received commitments of $100,000 or more from nearly 600 donors, and more than 100 donors have gifted at least $1 million.
