Harding receives grant from Mabee Foundation
The Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Okla., has given Harding University a $1.7 million challenge grant toward the construction of an $8.5 million facility to house the Carr College of Nursing and the Communication Science and Disorders Department.
To qualify for consideration of a challenge grant, Harding administrators had to certify they had already raised $3.4 million or 40 percent of the cost of the project. Harding has raised $3.6 million.
The Mabee Foundation has previously provided gifts and grants to Harding totaling more than $10.3 million. The two most recent gifts were a $1.1 million gift for the construction of the Farrar Health Sciences Center in 2008 and a $1 million gift toward the construction of the Thornton Education Center in 2005.
