MOORHEAD-Sanford Health will donate up to $3 million to Concordia College for the renovation of the college's integrated science complex, the college announced Wednesday.
The $45 million project is an update to the Ivers and Jones science buildings, and will include 19 teaching labs and 16 classrooms designed for modern, interactive teaching.
Sanford will match 10 percent of capital gifts to the project, up to $3 million, Concordia spokeswoman Amy Kelly said in a news release Wednesday.
"While we typically do not invest in general science infrastructure, we were moved by the market impact for enrollment growth and the focus on health careers at Concordia as a result of this project," Sanford CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft said in the release.
The college has raised $27 million and aims to raise at least $30 million in gifts to earn the full potential of the Sanford match, Kelly wrote.
Construction begins in April, and the complex is expected to be finished by August 2017.
