The Frick San Francisco Bay Area Challenge
Bob and Barbara Frick have established a $500,000 challenge to inspire fellow alumni, parents, and friends of Washington University in the San Francisco Bay area to increase their support for the Annual Fund. This challenge fund is in addition to the Fricks generous $1.5 million commitment to support facilities at Olin Business School. Donors to the Annual Fund challenge may direct their gift to the school, department, or scholarship of their choice. All gifts will support Leading Together: The Campaign for Washington University.
The Fricks have contributed more than $7 million to the university since the launch of Leading Together, contributing greatly to the progress of the campaign.
We believe in the value of learning, says Barbara Frick. A great education is more than the sum of its partsits the quality of the entire experience. Bob adds, Washington University gave me a terrific start. We want to help make that experience possible for the next generation of students.
Tuition alone cannot cover all costs associated with a top-tier education. The Annual Fund provides essential resources for scholarships, outstanding faculty, academic programs, student research, career preparation, libraries and technology, athletics and cultural programs, and a vibrant learning experience.
