Major Gifts and Grants
To sustain and advance its mission, Lewis & Clark depends on transformative gifts and grants from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government programs. Here is a recent sampling:
- Anonymous past parent: $100,000 for a scholarship benefiting underrepresented populations at the college.
- Betty Stillmaker Chinn BA ’83 and Richard Chinn: $68,070 for the Physics Student Assistance and Enrichment Fund, providing grants for various educational opportunities that will enhance the students’ learning experience at and beyond Lewis & Clark.
- Reinhard Pauly, professor emeritus of music, and his wife, Constance: The Reinhard and Constance Pauly Orchestral Strings Scholarship Fund and the Reinhard and Constance Pauly Orchestral Strings Enhancement Fund were recently endowed by the couple with proceeds of the sale of their home, which they had gifted to Lewis & Clark years ago in a retained life estate arrangement.
- Vance Savage, professor emeritus of Spanish, and his wife, Jill Nichols: The couple established a charitable gift annuity from which they will receive income for life (5%), and later the remainder will support a scholarship for students participating in overseas study programs, the Dr. Vance Savage and Ms. Jill Nichols Fund for Overseas Study.
- Ted Urban BS ’66: A significant gift of appreciated stock to establish a charitable gift annuity. Ted will receive income for life (4.4%), and later the remainder will support the college’s entrepreneurship program.
