ATHENS, Ga. (AP) University of Georgia officials are marking what they call the best fundraising year in the school's history.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that donors set the fundraising record in new University of Georgia President Jere Morehead's first year in office.

University fundraisers received gifts and pledges for $126.4 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30. That's up 8 percent from the previous years.

Officials say the number of donors also increased. Large and small gifts came from nearly 57,000 contributors, up 4 percent over the previous year.
