Kalamazoo College says it has raised more than $84 million in gifts and pledges toward its $125 million fundraising campaign goal.

Published reports say the private school released the update Wednesday.
The Campaign for Kalamazoo College was launched in March 2010. The effort now entering a more public phase and is expected to continue through June 2015.
The goal is almost double that of a prior campaign, which ran from 1998 to 2004 and exceeded its $65 million fundraising goal by $13 million.
The school, which has roughly 1,450 students, wants scholarships, 10 endowed professorships and an endowed fund for faculty innovation and experimentation in teaching and learning. Plans also call for building a new natatorium and a fitness and wellness center.
