Helen Zell's Historic Gift

As part of the largest donation in LSA history, and one of the largest ever to support the humanities, the College received $50 million from the Zell Family Foundation. This transformative gift, spearheaded by alumna Helen Zell, will permanently fund the MFA in Creative Writing Program, which was named the Helen Zell Writers’ Program in her honor.
