Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott is investing $8 million to support Achieve Atlanta’s efforts to help Atlanta Public Schools students access post-secondary education.
Tina Fernandez, executive director of Achieve Atlanta, said the gift came out of the blue.
“The process of giving is pretty amazing,” said Fernandez, adding that there is no application process. “Sometime back I got a call from a group of folks representing an anonymous donor. We didn’t hear back for a long time.”
