I think he should have offered to match anyone elses pledge. It would have accomplished much more. Now people think the Mir has the money they need and will not give as much.

Everyone knows the person that the article is referring to but I doubt its true. Even if it is, why on earth would they post it?

people know that the mir is still in debt and this is a push for otheer people to give what they can.  This person did an amazing thing and no one has a right to criticize unless they can put their money where their mouth is.  TIZKU LEMITZVOS!!!!

ITS TRUE
 spoke to one of the prime fundraisers for BMG he told me  he thinks this is the biggest single donation ever to a yeshiva (not yu etc) and is  unbelievably  impressed 
remember this isnt for a building or anything
 the RECHNITZ FAMILY has earned a front seat in gan eden for this

but as i answered the BMG fundraiser look  what REB NT FINKEL ZTL  had to do in order to get this donation HE HAD TO DIE FOR IT

(lets not go their)
 the point made was that its a university where all of their alumni are professionals and they have many endowments running in the millions of dollars. 5 mil isnt a # they havent
but  your right wing yeshiva only (not yeshiva-university as the name implies) never receives such donations proof is its news worthy for yw to post
 it if these sort of figure donations were donated every mitvoch and dunerschtik  they wudnt raise any eyebrows

first of all the fact that YW posts it does not make it newsworthy, they post all types of crap;  i go to the website also, just saying that they post anything that is the least bit about the yeshivish world
also why dont more yeshivos like mir have endowments, they have plenty of alumni who are also professionals who can donate to them and they obviously have donors willing to pay nice amounts to them as before R' NTF dies he was able to get nice checks (not as big as this one i know but still nice size ones), so why dont they have a nice endowment

Didn't Rav-Noy give the Rosh/YOEC some $6MM?  And Cheder Menachem also?
