DePauw University receives record-breaking $200M in donations

GREENCASTLE, Ind. (AP) — DePauw University says it has received $200 million in donations, representing the largest gift in the western Indiana school’s history. The private 1,800-student liberal arts college announced Wednesday that it received a $150 million gift from an anonymous donor and $50 million in supporting matches from other donors. President Lori S.
