A nonprofit that works to preserve and restore historic properties throughout Indiana says it has raised most of its fundraising target.

Indiana Landmarks said Thursday it has already raised nearly $22 million of the $25 million it projected for its first major capital and endowment campaign in more than 20 years.

Landmarks President Marsh Davis says the nonprofit hopes to raise the remainder from public donations.

The organization announced the fundraiser at a news conference at a residential and commercial development at Indianapolis' former Bush Stadium that's set to open in August.

Projects the nonprofit intends include restoring a 19th Century church in downtown Indianapolis, the 1939 Greyhound Station in Evansville and a historic bank building in downtown Terre Haute.
