NewsVisual: GWU to receive $80 million from philanthropists, Michael Milken and Summer Redstone… See the influencers behind their donation!

Last week it was announced that George Washington University was set to receive $80 million in three gifts connected to two philanthropists – Michael Milken and Summer M Redstone.

Redstone’s charitable foundation will provide $30 million over five years to establish a global center for prevention and wellness… Around $40 million over five years will then come from the Milken Institute to support the university’s young and growing school of public health and the school will also receive a further $10 million spread over this year and next from the Milken Family Foundation.

The Milken Institute and Redstone gifts each break a record for the school that was set in 2011, through a partnership with the Textile Museum that resulted in $25 million for the school. Below an image from Prospect Visual shows the influencers behind these record-breaking gifts.
