Augusta Preparatory Day School exceeded its $1 million endowment fundraising campaign with a $500,000 anonymous matching gift.
The matching gift was made by a parent and grandparent who made an initial $500,000 contribution to the school’s Framing the Fiftieth Campaign, according to a news release from the school. The campaign, launched in February 2011 to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary, raised slightly more than $1.5 million.
Almost 100 donors participated in the campaign. Augusta Prep’s endowment supports its academic programs and faculty professional development.
