ROCK HILL, S.C. - A Winthrop University alumna has made an estate gift of approximately $2 million to the university. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, intends for her gift to be used for scholarship support.
Citing her own Winthrop experience as life-changing and one which “opened doors” in her own life, the donor hopes that her legacy will provide future Winthrop students with similar opportunities.
President Anthony DiGiorgio expressed gratitude to the donor, who is from western South Carolina and has given previous student-oriented gifts to the university.
"While we cannot express our appreciation directly to this individual, I am confident she knows the tremendous impact this gift will have for our students," the president said. "It is a wonderful legacy and one we hope will inspire others to consider as they make their estate plans."
The gift is one of the largest ever received by Winthrop University and is the third gift of a million dollars or more announced this semester, including gifts by Harry and ‘Becca Dalton and Ray and Patricia Carter.
