The University System of Maryland and its 12 member institutions raised nearly $300 million during fiscal year 2013 — more than $65 million above their collective goal and $57 million more than the previous fiscal year, according to a report presented to the Board of Regents Friday.

Most of the funds were raised by two schools: The University of Maryland, College Park and The University of Maryland, Baltimore, which collectively brought in more than $232 million.

UMD raised $118 million, which was $10 million higher than the campus' goal for the year, but still $6 million shy of the amount raised in fiscal year 2012. UMB brought in $114 million, beating both its goal and the prior year's total by more than $25 million.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County came in third, raising nearly $24 million — triple the amount it raised in fiscal year 2012 and more than doubling its $10 million goal.

Three schools fell short of their goals. Frostburg State University brought in $2.1 million — roughly $169,000 less than hoped for. The University of Maryland Eastern Shore was down about $304,000 from its goal of $1.2 million. And the University of Maryland University College missed its $3 million goal by about $313,000.
