Flora Stone Mather Alumnae Board Celebrates Women with $1 Million Challenge Grant

womensm.jpg Last week, Harcourt House was filled with supporters of a new campus initiative focused on women's issues.

Patricia B. Kilpatrick (FSM '49, GRS '51, education) -- who has served the university for about 50 years as a faculty member in the physical education department, secretary of the university, university marshal and now a member of the Flora Stone Mather Alumnae Board, among other roles -- announced at the event that the alumnae board is offering a $1 million challenge grant in support of the Celebrating Women initiative.

The goals of the Celebrating Women endowment campaign are to:

  • Build a $3 million endowment to provide program enhancement for the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women,
  • Construct a distinctive childcare center on campus,
  • Endow at least one chair for a talented woman scientist or engineer,
  • Provide additional undergraduate scholarships for women students.

Kilpatrick is serving as co-chair of the initiative. For more information or to make a donation, contact Gary Pillar at 216-368-3992.
