Wow!

Helen Gurley Brown, the former editor of Cosmo and bestselling author of Sex and the Single Girl, has gifted the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and Stanford’s School of Engineering a whopping $30 million.

The two schools set aside $24 million of the donation to be used to endow a professorship, and to award grants and fellowships. The joint program will be named after Brown and her late husband, David Brown, who attended both schools.

The remaining $6 million will be used to construct a state-of-the-art newsroom in the Columbia journalism school building.

Helen said of her donation:

"David and I have long supported and encouraged bright young people to follow their passions and to create original content. Great content needs usable technology. Sharing a language is where the magic happens. It’s time for two great American institutions on the East and West Coasts to build a bridge."

Agreed!
