ERN’s Largest Donation

ERN’s largest donation to date (that I’m aware of) is a $250,000 gift from the Robertson Foundation.  The foundation was started in 1996 by Julian Robertson, the former hedge fund manager of Tiger Management.

Although Tiger Management is no longer around, they still have an active foundation (the Tiger Foundation) funded by Robertson and other former Tiger Management employees.

Below is a summary of education-related donations from the Robertson Foundation and the Tiger Foundation.  Notes: only donations over $10k are included.  It’s also quite possible I’ve included some donations that are only tangentially related to education, or missed some education-related donations.  All information pulled from Guidestar.org.
