HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall University says it has raised more than $2.5 million to date as part of the school's "Bucks for Brains Challenge" campaign.

The Huntington school said Thursday that money for its research trust fund was helped by end-of-year gifts in December.

Marshall is hoping to raise $15 million in private funds by March 2013 to support its research programs.

The private contributions will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the state's West Virginia Research Trust Fund for a total impact of up to $30 million at Marshall.

West Virginia created the trust fund in 2008 to promote world-class research at the state's leading universities.
