UK receives largest gift ever in university’s nearly 160-year history

The University of Kentucky recently received the largest gift ever in the university’s nearly 160-year history.

Late University of Kentucky alum and former trustee Carol Martin “Bill” Gatton bestowed a gift of $100 million to the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment through The Bill Gatton Foundation.
