SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Wesleyan University says an anonymous donor has agreed to match any commitments made the rest of this month toward the school’s $7.5 million sports complex, up to $400,000.

President and CEO Matt Thompson says the donation means the university needs less than $600,000 to reach its goal for the project.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1mgf0rX ) the Mabee Foundation has pledged $750,000 if the university raises $6.75 million by Oct. 8. The school says in a news release that is has received more than $750,000 in the past 12 weeks.

Phase I of the project includes two lighted turf fields, an eight-lane competitive track and resurfaced tennis courts.

The second phase will include a grandstand, press box, concession stands and restrooms.
