Here’s another news story about a fabulously wealthy donor giving a ton of money to a fabulously wealthy institution. A Wall Street titan and alumnus of Yale University, Stephen A. Schwarzman, contributed $150 million for a performing arts center that will be fashioned out of a set of extraordinary buildings on the campus. In reporting this gift, the New York Times mentioned that a collateral benefit will be gained by Yale’s host city, New Haven, Conn., which is dealing with a lot of the same urban challenges as other small cities in the northeast. According to the Yale News, Sept. 24, 2014, the Yale University Endowment was valued at $23.9 billion as of June 30, 2014. $23.9 billion. I’m happy for Yale that Mr. Schwarzman was moved to be so generous to his alma mater. Wouldn’t it be nice if the New York Times wrote about $150 million going to UMass Lowell or the City of Lowell from a prosperous and visionary person. $150 million. That is a lot of bread. We would do good things, big things, with that kind of money. Wouldn’t it be special to get a lump sum like that? Maybe the next guy or woman will spread the wealth around.
