An anonymous donor recently offered to give Legacy Christian School in Noblesville $50,000 if the school could first raise an additional $20,000 on its own. Supporters helped the school raise more than twice this amount.
LCS had until the end of 2010 to raise the funds in what it dubbed its “Merry Match” fundraising campaign. LCS communications director said in a release that donation poured in from not only Noblesville, but other locations around the state and even from other states as far away as Arizona.
In total, LCS raised nearly $45,000 on its own, totaling $95,000 raised in one month when combined with the sole donor’s contributions.
“The generosity of our supporters, especially in this economy and at this time of year, was simply phenomenal,” said Hawkins stated. “The Lord has blessed us mightily, and we know He expects us to continue to bless others in return.”
Donors also stepped up in recent weeks to allow LCS to up its offer for Forest Hill Elementary School, which will close in August, from $330,000 to $1 million in cash. However, the city of Noblesville and Noblesville Schools already have agreed to a deal for the property.
