LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. - St. Paul's College is $300,000 short of its goal to raise the $5 million necessary to help ensure its survival.

President Eddie Moore Jr. made the announcement Wednesday and issued an appeal for additional donations.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( reports that the historically black college in Lawrenceville launched its "Now & Forever" campaign six months ago to raise $5 million to demonstrate its financial stability to its accrediting agency.

Moore says the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges will meet June 18-21 in Chantilly to determine if the school's efforts warrant reaccreditation.

The college, founded in 1888, is in its second and final allowable year of probation.
