A blog post I wrote for the Temple News blog, Broad & Cecil: Temple gets $5 million in anonymous cash: 2.6.2008
According to a Daily News article, Temple received two cashiers checks totalling $5 million dollars last Thursday. The checks, delivered in ordinary envelopes, were signed by cashiers at a Wells Fargo bank in Arizona.
One check was for $1 million and was intended for “general use” and the other was for $4 million to go towards scholarships for women and minority students. These instructions came in letters along with the checks.
Temple representatives said they may never know who the donor is, but confirmed that the checks are legit.
