When the Mississippi State University Foundation conducts a capital campaign, it usually sets a dollar amount as a goal. Its Infinite Impact campaign, for instance, has a goal of $600 million, and it recently exceeded two thirds of that goal six months after it became public.

But the MSU Foundation had a different kind of goal for Hail State Day, a fundraising event within Infinite Impact held on Monday. Cathy Lammons, MSU Foundation director for communication and donor relations, said instead of aiming to collect a certain amount of money, Hail State Day’s goal was to have 1,001 donors.
