ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has announced a $2 million commitment to the College Football Hall of Fame.

The hall said Monday Blank made the commitment during the Falcons’ NFL draft celebration at the facility last week.

The commitment, made on behalf of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, is to assist the continued development of the facility, which opened in downtown Atlanta last year. The hall says the donation also will support “charitable and civic initiatives.”

Blank said in a statement the Hall of Fame celebrates great moments, players and coaches in college football history “like no other place in the world.”

College Football Hall of Fame president John Stephenson said the hall is grateful for Blank’s “support and unmatched generosity.”
