Humanities Institute receives $1 million donation
February 26th, 2013
Wade Murphy, Wake Forest College Class of 2000 and a member of the College Board of Visitors, has made a $1 million gift to the Humanities Institute, which allows the Institute to more than fulfill the fundraising goal required by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant it was offered in December 2010. The gift is significant because of its purpose in establishing an endowment for the Humanities Institute, because it represents the largest single gift by a graduate under the age of 35, and because it expresses Wade Murphy’s deep commitment to the humanities and to Wake Forest’s liberal arts tradition. On behalf of current and future generations of WFU faculty and students whose research, learning and creative activity your gift now enables the Humanities Institute to support, thank you, Wade Murphy!
