Campaign Arizona will announce its presidential leadership team and the amount of money it intends to raise on Oct. 6 in one of the biggest fundraising events of any Arizona public university.
"This fundraiser is trying to raise vastly more money than any university in state history, the goal will set state records," said University of Arizona President Peter Likins.
The exact amount Campaign Arizona is going to try to raise will not be known until the co-chairs and the leadership team get together on Oct. 6 and decide, Likins said.
An official goal has not been announced, but they are hoping to raise more than the $500 million, said Rick Frisch, the executive director of UA Foundation.
The amount was originally predicted by Likins.
