The Park School has received the largest donation in its roughly 106-year history, but it’s a secret who the major donor is.
The private school’s Board of Trustees announced on Tuesday that it’s a gift of more than $830,000, and at the request of the donor’s family, will keep the benefactor anonymous.
“This is a game-changer for us,” said Chris Lauricella, head of the school. “We’re subject to market fluctuations,” so this will help provide more financial security, he said.
Carolyn Hoyt Stevens, Park’s director of development, said the previous largest gift to the school was in the $675,000 range.
Stevens added that there isn’t a general range for how much people usually donate to Park, a private school on Harlem Road in Amherst.
