USF Muma College of Business receives $5 million donation
July 7, 2020 - The USF Foundation has received a $5 million gift from alumna and longtime donor Lynn Pippenger. The gift will create an endowed deanship in the Muma College of Business. The earnings from the endowment will support the academic activities of the college’s dean, including faculty support and salaries, graduate fellowships and assistantships, faculty research awards, professional development support, conferences, publications, visiting lectures, speaker series and other programs that promote the college's core mission. In 2015, Pippenger donated $10 million to name the Lynn Pippenger School of Accountancy. One year later, she gave $5 million to name Lynn Pippenger Hall, which houses the Kate Tiedemann School of Business and Finance on the USF St. Petersburg campus.
