Benedictine Military School receives $1 million matching gift

SAVANNAH, Ga. – Benedictine Military School is humbled to announce a $1 million matching gift pledge from the Dorminy family for the Forward, Always Forward Capital Campaign. The campaign surpassed the $10 million benchmark earlier this month making it the most successful campaign in the school’s 116-year history. This is the third $1 million commitment made during the capital campaign and demonstrates the community’s belief in the mission and vision of Benedictine Military School.

With this new $1 million matching pledge, all new pledges to the capital campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million. This fall, Headmaster Father Frank Ziemkiewicz announced the final three projects which will close out the campaign: a synthetic turf field, improved security/parking, and classroom renovations.

Will Dorminy, who visited campus this week, said he is impressed with Benedictine’s progress. “The school develops young men with character, values, and discipline,” Dorminy said. “I believe our country needs more Benedictine Military School graduates, and our family is excited to make this investment in their mission.”

“We are most grateful to the Dorminy family for their incredible generosity to BC,” Ziemkiewicz said. “The Dorminy family came to BC inspired by its traditions and hallmarks, and the support they have seen from our BC parents and alumni. They have offered us this challenge confident that the BC family will rise to the occasion. We continue to be most grateful for the generosity of those who have already donated to the capital campaign. May God’s blessings be upon all who have supported this effort on behalf of future generations of Cadets.”
