SALISBURY — Dr. Anthony J. Davis, president of 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.

Davis exclaimed at that time that the initial $1 million contribution was the largest individual gift from a non-alumnus in Livingstone’s history.

That additional gift will address the college’s challenges related to capital improvements and campus infrastructure. It will also enable Livingstone College to continue its mission to educate, equip and empower its students to compete and contribute in a global context with confidence and competence.

Davis indicated that he 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.
