bildeAn anonymous donor has committed to giving Stillman College $2 million, the largest single gift in the private school’s history.

“Stillman has been very fortunate to secure the commitment of this $2 million contribution from a supporter who has a storied history of giving to the college,” Dennis Driver, chairman of Stillman’s board of trustees, said in a statement released Tuesday.

The gift was announced Tuesday by Stillman. The gift will be used for the long-term stability of the college, according to the release. The college will receive the $2 million during the fall semester. It will help pay certain financial obligations, Driver said.

Driver also challenged his fellow trustees and Stillman’s alumni to find opportunities to support the college.

“This gift will allow us to make a significant impact on our financial responsibilities and provide increased opportunities for our students. Our ability to do this supports the Stillman mission of providing an enriching educational environment for our current and future students. We hope that this donation will serve as an incentive for our alumni and the community to support Stillman at an unprecedented level,” Stillman President Peter Millet said in the release.
