NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - The sizable donations continue to roll in for the planned International African-American History Museum.

The congregation of the Royal Baptist Church in North Charleston presented a $25,000 check to the project Wednesday.

With this latest donation, the museum has about $5 million left to raise to meet its Founders Fund goal.

IAAM has received many donations upwards of six and seven figures including a $10 million donation in 2017.

The museum is scheduled to be finished by 2020. It will be located at Gadsden's Warf where nearly half of the enslaved Africans who came ashore in North America disembarked.
