Anonymous donor issues challenge to raise all funds for center by end of 2012
University officials announced in September that a donor, who has asked to remain anonymous, has offered a substantial challenge grant to help fund the construction of the new Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Center. The challenge specifies that, to receive the grant, the cost of the center must not exceed $20 million, and the university must raise all funds for the facility through gifts and grants by Dec. 31, 2012.
“This generous donor has pledged the largest challenge grant in the history of UMHB,” said Dr. Randy O’Rear, university president. “Meeting the terms of this challenge will enable our $20 million nursing facility to be funded debt free. We are excited about this opportunity and optimistic that we can meet this challenge by the end of next year.”
