Fond memories, fat wallets

There is apparently no truth to the rumor that the new Brandeis University fight song contains the term "cha-ching."

At least 31 Brandeis University alumni must have fond memories of their years at the Waltham campus -- they all made multi-million dollar gifts that contributed to a record-breaking year for fund-raising at the school.

The former students all made contributions of between $1 million and $10 million. In total, donors to the school contributed $89.4 million during the fiscal year that ended June 30, a 10 percent increase over last year's record-breaking tally.

Brandeis, founded in 1948, is the only non-sectarian Jewish-sponsored university in the United States.
