Gifts in action

"At my age, you think back on your life, you reflect. My mother was a supportive person, and we wanted to acknowledge her, fundamentally, for that reason. I’ve learned that it’s much easier for business schools to attract donations than nursing schools. And I am biased towards supporting things that are underfinanced. That seems to be one of my personality quirks."

– Ken McArthur
