A secret donor recently awarded Norfolk State University a useful donation during a time of economic downturn — $3.5 million, the largest donation in NSU’s history. During last month’s Board of Visitors’ meeting, NSU President Carolyn Meyers announced that the university had received two donations from an anonymous donor.
“We have no idea who gave that money, but we have a lot of people taking credit for it,” Meyers joked at a recent meeting.
A total of $3 million has been designated to provide financial assistance for NSU students. The second gift of $500,000 will assist the institution in meeting its priorities in areas such as faculty support, research and equipment.
