DU receives $14 million gift

The donation will establish public policy programming at the school


Doug and Mary Scrivner have pledged $14 million to the University of Denver to establish the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy, a news release from the school reported.

The donation will support the current public policy program by funding an endowed chair, scholarships, professorships and fellowships and programming.

In addition to the $14 million donation, the Scrivners have pledged an additional $1 million toward programming that supports the university’s mission.

Doug Scrivner graduated from DU’s law school in 1977. He and Mary reside in Los Altos Hills, California, and have been longtime supporters of the school, the news release said.

“The University of Denver has long been an important part of Mary’s and my life, from meeting and marrying here to serving on the Board of Trustees and in numerous other ways,” Doug said. “We are thrilled to emphasize our legacy here at DU through the Scrivner Institute, knowing that the knowledge created here, combined with an exceptional student experience, will impact our world in countless ways for the years to come.”
