A major fundraising milestone has been reached at UMass Dartmouth.

The Charlton Trust recently donated $3 million for the expansion of the Charlton School of Business on campus. The pledge was contingent on the university raising $1.5 million from other sources. The university announced this week, that goal had been reached.

UMass Dartmouth spokesman John Hoey tells WBSM News, a strong business school plays a key role in the region’s economy.
