Endowment officials at the University of Kansas expect to see about a 3 percent increase in commitments and contributions in the fiscal year that ended June 30.
A KU Endowment Association spokeswoman says around $94 million was raised, the largest amount generated in the association's 117-year history.
Kansas State spokeswoman Julie Lea says the school is still anticipating a top-five year in terms of total fundraising. She called that ``very heartening.''
