Monfort Family Foundation Commits $4.2 Million to College of Business

In January, the Monfort Family Foundation pledged $4.2 million to continue its long time dedication to the Kenneth W. Monfort College of Business (MCB), its students and faculty.
The family’s commitment to the well-known business college honors the enduring memory of Kenny Monfort, the college’s namesake, revolutionary businessman, philanthropist and beloved family patriarch.

The donation will be spread over six years and is earmarked for student scholarships, faculty enrichment, competitive opportunities for students and more.

The university reached a major milestone in the fundraising of the signature new Campus Commons building to the tune of $5 million in gifts, funds pledged, and UNC Foundation support. The announcement places the university over one third of the way toward the $12 million fundraising goal with plans to break ground in late 2016.
