Dr. Anthony J. Davis, president of Salisbury, North Carolina HBCU Livingstone College, announced Tuesday afternoon that the college was blessed to receive its fifth $1 million contribution. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has given the College four additional $1 million contributions, the first being received during the College’s homecoming celebration last October. Dr. Davis exclaimed at that time that the initial $1 million contribution was the largest individual gift from a non-alumnus in the College’s history. 

This additional gift will address the College’s challenges related to capital improvements and the campus’s infrastructure. It will also enable us to continue our mission to educate, equip, and empower our students to compete and contribute in a global context with confidence and competence. Dr. Davis appreciates the community’s support and hopes that this exemplary act of philanthropy will ignite the spirit of giving among other members of the community. 


Congratulations to all the HBCUs for these outstanding contributions!
