'Get On Campus' fundraiser digital fundraiser off to a good start
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
New initiative for the University of South Alabama underway to get the money needed to build an on campus stadium.
It's called the "Get On Campus" Fundraiser - soliciting money from faculty - staff - alumni - and USA fans.
At this hour nearly $60,000 in donations have rolled in.
The plan is still to get a stadium up and running by the 2020 season on that construction site approved in June.
However, Athletic Director Joel Erdman says that could change.
The fundraiser comes after the City of Mobile voted "no" on funding the stadium.
Erdman is matching dollar per dollar up to $10,000 for the next 122 days.
USA President Tony Waldrop is also matching donations up to $25,000.
