MSU-B Undertakes Fundraising Project

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

MSU Billings needs to raise $5 million to get another $10 million promised by the state to expand and renovate the science hall.

The current building now called Yellowstone Hall, houses the university's science and health professions classrooms and laboratories. However, for the new expansion and renovation to take place, MSU-B must raise $5 million from private donors before the state will release $10 million that was appropriated during the last legislative session.

The $10 million that was appropriated by the legislature for the project does not expire. But obviously it's in our best interest to try and create a pretty robust fundraising effort because the $10 million is static. So it can't get any greater and the further we go into the future, we're going to start having things such as inflation and cost of construction, work against us," said MSU-B Facilities Services Director, Jason McGimpsey.

MSU-B has a timeline tentatively set of two years to raise the needed $5 million.
