Congratulations to SMU…

I was trying to find an article on it. How long did it take to raise the $100MM for the stadium project in 2011/12?
Del Conte (who was the advent liaison for the fundraising efforts) was hired in Dec '09 and the $105mm was announced in Aug '10. (For reference.)

For fun, $105mm (raised right after a global financial crisis), would be ~$150mm today. Further, it was also fully funded from 34 donors.

Fund raising for a specific cause (new stadium) is always easier than just raising money to raise it. That’s what I found impressive. The amount of wealth generated by the wealthiest Americans over the last few years certainly aided the cause of the Ponies.
