The two gifts recently inspired by the Langones include a transformative $45 million being donated by philanthropists Fiona Druckenmiller and her husband, Stanley. Mrs. Druckenmiller, a former portfolio manager for the Dreyfuss Corp., has been a Trustee since 2006. The Druckenmillers' gift, like that of the Langones, is almost entirely unrestricted and will also help support the vision articulated by the new leadership team focused on growth and advancement.
