West Texas A&M University’s One West Campaign has a new fundraising goal of $175 million.

School President Walter Wendler credits the generosity of donors, and the bold vision of the university to set the new goal.

The One West Campaign was launched two years ago and met its original fundraising goal of $150 million in June.

So far, nearly 8,000 donors have given more than 62,000 gifts as part of the campaign.

Wendler says meeting the original goal, and setting a new one gives the school great momentum and is a point of pride for the Panhandle university
