Dean Olian noted that three donors have given $10 million or more, ten have given between $5 million and $10 million and 50 have given over a million dollars. At the top of the list is naming donor John Anderson who, with his wife Marion, gave the school $15 million in 1987 and $25 million in 2011. Anderson was also instrumental in bringing other business leaders together to support construction of the school's campus.
