On way to ‘banner year,’ UMass looks to innovate fund-raising options

With federal and state ­dollars in question, the University of Massachusetts system has ratcheted up fund-raising, achieving 58 percent of its nearly $103 million goal in the first half of fiscal 2013.

“Our performance this year is really standout,” said ­Norman Peters, chairman of the UMass Board of Trustee’s Advancement Committee at a meeting Wednesday. “In comparing it to last year, we’re really on the move. Of course the first two quarters are usually the slowest. So it looks like we’re going to have a banner year.”
