The Craig K. and Sue J. Svensson Endowment for the Future

October 29, 2016 - The Purdue College of Pharmacy is pleased to announce the establishment of a dual-purpose endowment made possible by the generosity of Jeannie (BS 1961) and James Chaney. The couple’s $100,000 gift was presented to Dean Craig Svensson and his wife, Sue, during the Donor Recognition Brunch this morning. The Craig K. and Sue J. Svensson Endowment for the Future will be used for the construction of a new building or renovations to the existing building. Until such time, funds from the dual-purpose endowment will support Pharmacy student scholarships.

“It seems inadequate to just say ‘thank you’ to Craig and Sue for all of their contributions to making the Purdue College of Pharmacy one of the preeminent colleges in the U.S.,” remarks Jeannie. “When Jim and I first learned of Craig’s plans to retire as dean effective June 30, 2017, we thought of ways we could recognize his many accomplishments. With that in mind, we have established the Craig and Sue Svensson Endowment for the Future.”

The Chaneys invite alumni and friends to join them by contributing to this fund as a way to honor the Svenssons and show gratitude for 10 outstanding years. You may make an online gift here. Select “other” for designation, and then specify your gift designation by entering “Svensson Endowment for the Future”. For additional information, please contact Katie Skeel, Manager of Development Operations and Donor Relations, at kjskeel@prf.org or (765) 494-1370. Donations may be mailed to her attention at:
