MA campus given to group that will find owner

The Oklahoma-based owners of a former prep school campus in Massachusetts have donated the property to a Christian grant-making foundation, which will continue looking for a permanent owner.

The Green family, owner of the Hobby Lobby craft store chain, announced Wednesday their donation to the National Christian Foundation, effective Dec. 28. The Georgia-based foundation is the largest Christian grant-making organization in the U.S.

The Greens acquired the 217-acre former property of the Northfield-Mount Hermon prep school in 2009, intending to give it to a college. After that fell through, they offered it for free to groups that promised to honor the legacy of evangelist D.L. Moody, who founded the school.

In September, the Greens announced the gift to Arizona-based Grand Canyon University. The school backed out weeks later, citing unanticipated costs.
