Largest Gift Ever to Sandburg College Foundation
Thanks to a Galesburg woman, more financial aid will be available for students at Carl Sandburg College. This week, the Carl Sandburg College Foundation announced the receipt of the largest gift in its history - 2.5 million dollars.
The money comes from the estate of business-woman, community leader, and philanthropist, Ann Asplund, who died in February at the age of 84.
Foundation officials say she first gave money for nursing scholarships, then decided to set aside money in her will for all Sandburg students.
