$10 million pledged toward faculty support

An anonymous donor has made a $10 million pledge to Scripps College, on behalf of the Board of Trustees. It is the largest gift from a living donor in the College’s history.

The funds are to be used in support of the faculty. According to Roxanne Wilson, chair of the Board of Trustees, the donor emphasized that the gift is intended to signal clear and enthusiastic support of the Scripps faculty.

“In addition,” said Wilson, “the gift is meant to demonstrate the trustees’ confidence in Ellen Browning Scripps’ vision for the College and their desire to help perpetuate the strong interdisciplinary program in the humanities.”
