Despite challenging economic times, Cal Poly Pomona has amassed more than $100 million in donations  and pledges midway through an ambitious fundraising campaign, university officials announced Wednesday.

The Campaign for Cal Poly Pomona was launched in November 2010 with a goal of raising $150 million for research, scholarships and other campus needs.

California State University’s 23 campuses lost $750 million in state funding in 2011-12, with cuts to the  Pomona campus totaling nearly $32.5 million.  But those and previous cuts have spurred support from alumni and others, including 5,000 donors who made first-time contributions, officials said.
