D.C. Jewish School and N.C. State U. Announce Big Gifts

The Jewish Primary Day School in Washington, D.C., has received $20 million to add a middle school to its existing elementary classes, reports The Washington Post.

The New York-based Gottesman Fund and Alfred Moses, a D.C. attorney and former diplomat, each gave $10 million for the project, which will create the first Jewish middle school in the District in decades. The expanded institution will be called the Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation's Capital.

North Carolina State University announced a $16-million gift Monday to its College of Veterinary Medicine from the foundation of a late newspaperman who entrusted his own dogs to the vet school for care, the Raleigh News & Observer writes.

The Randall B. Terry Charitable Foundation has given the university $47 million since its inception in 1996. Half of the new gift will be used to double a scholarship fund for veterinary students, with the rest boosting research and endowed professorships. Randall B. Terry Jr. was the co-publisher of a newspaper in High Point, N.C.
