HANOVER, N.H., April 10 (UPI) -- Ivy League Dartmouth College received a donation of $100 million from an unidentified benefactor.

The college said they'll use the largest single donation in its 244-year history to hire 30-40 new professors over the next 10 years and towards the "Challenge grant," which is aimed at raising even more money.

The Challenge grant will be useful, as the same anonymous donor promised the school another $100 million if they raise $50 million on their own by December 31 of next year.
