Quincy University’s financial recovery fundraising campaign gets a major shot in the arm Monday.

In a press release, QU officials announce a $1-million dollar gift from an anonymous donor to go toward the school’s $7-million dollar fundraising goal.

Quincy University leadership set out on a five-year financial recovery plan three months ago that includes permanent expense reduction while focusing on growing enrollment and increasing net tuition revenue enrollment growth.

Officials say this million-dollar gift puts the school at nearly 30 percent of its five-year fundraising goal in just the first three months of the campaign.
