PITTSBURGH, PA— Chatham University has received a $15 million grant from the Falk Foundation to support Chatham’s School of Sustainability & the Environment. This grant, the largest gift Chatham has ever received in its 144-year history, builds upon the major gifts received to-date for Chatham’s School of Sustainability & the Environment and the new Eden Hall Campus from individuals and foundations including The Eden Hall Foundation, the Richard King Mellon Foundation, the McCune Foundation, Dollar Bank and PNC Charitable Trust among other supporters.

In honor and recognition of this gift, Chatham’s School of Sustainability & the Environment will also be renamed, the Falk School of Sustainability at Chatham University.
