WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – The Wichita State University Foundation says it received more than $22.5 million in giving in the past fiscal year, the highest amount in three years.

The organization said Wednesday the total includes almost $5 million from 19 estate gifts.

Foundation president Elizabeth King says the engineering college received the largest amount, mainly due a gift from the estate of Velma Wallace.

The total value of the WSU Foundation’s endowment is about $230 million.
