HAMPTON, Va. (July 28, 2020) – Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey is pleased to announce that the University has received the largest, single gift in the school’s history of $30,000,000 from Ms. MacKenzie Scott. Ms. Scott made the announcement public today, saying “I pledged to give the majority of my wealth back to the society that helped generate it, [and] to do it thoughtfully.”
Dr. Harvey, who has successfully led Hampton University for more than four decades, met the measure that Ms. Scott set when she noted that she wanted to call attention to “organizations and leaders driving change.” She chose Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey and Hampton University as one of the institutions because as she explained, the recipients had to “have a track record of effective management and significant impact in their fields.”
