The late Carol Cope was well-known at the University of Nebraska at Kearney throughout a half-century of giving. Her final gift — $11.6 million in endowed funds — will ensure that students and faculty know her name for decades to come.
The gift from Cope, who died last year on her 103rd birthday, came as part of a $12.6 million total gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation. It was the biggest single donation the Kearney campus has ever received.
