$5 million. That’s the amount of an anonymous gift pledge Crossnore Communities for Children has received, which is the largest gift in the organization’s history. The money will go toward the Promise of Home campaign to help children experiencing trauma live, learn, and heal.

This gift requires Crossnore to secure an additional $3 million in matching funds for its charter school, meaning the organization still has work to do in order to fully take advantage of this funding.

The Reynolds American Foundation pledged $750,000 toward the charter school over the next three years. With that, $2.25 million is still needed for the organization to secure the anonymous pledge. Each donor will need to make a minimum of $500,000 or more per commitment (multiple year commitments are acceptable) to match the gift. Donors can make their pledge to the campaign online.
