Livingstone College Gifted Third Anonymous Million Dollar Donation

North Carolina HBCU Livingstone College has received its third million dollar donation by an anonymous gifter.

Livingstone College has a very wealthy secret admirer. The North Carolina HBCU has now received its third anonymous donation of a million dollars.

The three donations were given in less than six months by the same anonymous party, as announced by the school’s president, Dr. Anthony J. Davis, on March 11. They are assumed to have been donated by a member of its extended community and are the largest ever received anonymously by Livingstone.

“Thank you. This type of contribution allows the college to allocate funds strategically by enhancing academic programs, expanding scholarship opportunities, and investing in innovative facilities and technologies.”

However, the initial donation was not the last, as the next million-dollar allotment was released during their 145th Founder’s Day celebrations in February of this year, as reported by the Salisbury Post.

“Receiving two $1 million contributions from an anonymous donor is transformative for Livingstone College and will continue to impact the ongoing work being executed on the campus,” shared Dr. Davis after its ceremony. “This second unrestricted contribution of this nature speaks to this community’s confidence in the leadership of my presidency and this administration, and for that, we are grateful.”

While the most recent gift does not coincide with an important event for the college, it will go toward the improvement of Livingstone and scholarship opportunities for its students. The school, located in Salisbury, North Carolina, has plans to update its residence halls and classrooms in the upcoming years.

The school also hopes the massive donations will encourage more of its alumni and surrounding community to give back, with ambitions to reimagine its campus becoming a more viable reality.
