Early this morning, GW Today announced that GW has received gifts from the Milken Institute, the Sumner M. Redstone Charitable Foundation, and the Milken Family Foundation:
The George Washington University has received three gifts totaling $80 million that will address—in collaboration with other institutions—many of the world’s public health challenges, focusing on prevention of disease and promotion of wellness. The contributions are from the Milken Institute, the Sumner M. Redstone Charitable Foundation and the Milken Family Foundation.
In honor of these transformative gifts, the GW Board of Trustees has unanimously approved the renaming of the School of Public Health and Health Services as the Milken Institute School of Public Health and the establishment of the Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness.
“These extraordinary gifts collectively represent the largest donation ever received by the George Washington University,” said GW Board of Trustees Chairman Nelson A. Carbonell Jr., BS ’85, “Such a generous contribution to the university demonstrates a commitment to the health of people all over the world.”
