Stories of Generosity
For more than 125 years, donors have been essential to supporting the vision, programs, facilities, faculty, research, and student opportunities that make our school one of the best in the nation.
Lyle & Sharon Bighley
When Lyle Bighley was in graduate school, he received financial help from an American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education Fellowship. This enabled him to complete his graduate studies. They were grateful for that assistance and wanted to pass along that same sort of help to graduate students at his alma mater.
Marsha Millonig is happy to give back because she credits the College of Pharmacy for the career she's enjoyed and the abilities to be self-employed working on projects that she feels make a difference.
Philip S. Portoghese
In an effort to continue and expand research in the neurosciences within the Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Philip Portoguese made a gift to establish the Philip S. Portoghese Chair in Medicinal Chemistry. The donation has given him a personal sense of accomplishment and pride.
