Thank you to our generous, major gift donors
Oct 21, 2020

We are incredibly grateful to all our supporters and every gift makes a difference. We want to thank and acknowledge the many major gifts that were made today during Raise Some L. 

 

“The University of Louisville is grateful for our generous donors who support cutting-edge research, innovations in health care and student success,” said Jasmine Farrier, vice president for university advancement. “These extraordinary gifts help UofL become an even greater place to learn, work and invest.”

 

 

Some of those gifts include:

  • $2.5 million to the University of Louisville Depression Center from Otto D’Olivo to create the Otto and Susan D’Olivo Endowed Research Fund for Bipolar Disorder Treatment. This gift will establish an endowment to fund important research on bipolar and other mood disorders, conditions that affect one in five Americans. The focus of research will be on the basic mechanisms of these illnesses and the development of improved treatments.
  • $1 million to the School of Nursing from an anonymous donor to kick off renovations to bring the school’s facilities up to national standards for student learning and adaptable teaching. These renovations will allow for hands-on experiences and opportunities for innovative thinking complemented by a state-of-the-art facility. In making the gift, the donor issued a challenge to support the next generation of nurses by giving back to the School of Nursing during the day of giving campaign.
  • $1 million from Dr. and Mrs. William Cheadle to fund the Residency Program Director position within General Surgery in the School of Medicine that is responsible for directing all aspects of the general surgery residency program. “Mary and I wanted to give back to this outstanding residency training program which enabled me to achieve a successful academic career,” Dr. Cheadle said. “We appreciate the supreme devotion to the education of our surgical residents by Drs. (Hiram) Polk, (David) Richardson, (Kelly) McMasters and others in maintaining the highest standard of excellence of the University of Louisville general surgery residency.”
  • $500,000 to the UofL Health – James Graham Brown Cancer Center from Raymond Loyd to expand the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center and to fund transportation, housing and other needs for low-income patients as well as holistic therapies for all patients. A cancer survivor himself, Loyd is challenging everyone to give back and help save lives by giving to the center during Day of Giving.
  • $100,000 to the Conn Center for Renewable Energy Research from Hank and Rebecca Conn to continue and advance the center’s goal of renewable energy and promoting technologies, practices and programs that increase efficiency for energy utilization. Hank Conn issued a challenge to fellow UofL supporters: “We have committed $100,000 for UofL’s day of giving…our passion is renewable energy…we’d like to see you push your passion.”
  • $30,000 from the Bezos Family Foundation and $15,000 from the C. E. and S. Foundation to the Center for Creative Placehealing’s Kentucky Wellbeing Challenge Fund in the School of Public Health and Information Sciences. This fund supports programming related to the Center for Creative Placehealing’s Kentucky Wellbeing Challenge, which will launch a statewide program that provides inspiration, tools and a platform for high school students to design S.T.E.A.M. solutions to some of Kentucky’s most critical health and wellbeing challenges.
