Michigan State University says it raised $272 million during the 2015-16 fiscal year.

The East Lansing school says Wednesday that represents the most successful fundraising year in the university's history.

The donations are part of the school's Empower Extraordinary campaign, which has a goal of $1.5 billion, and follows consecutive years of raising $238 million in 2013-14 and 2014-15. To date, more than 249,000 donors have contributed more than $1.2 billion.

The fundraising campaign is scheduled to conclude in 2018.
