    If you had 93 million dollars to spare, I would hope you'd be smart enough to use the proper grammar for "You're welcome".

    Unless he meant it to be "your" welcome not his.

    Well, technically the gift is an equity stake for a company, which makes them majority owner. Granted, it's an educational company, so poor grammar probably still disqualifies.

    If I had $93m, I'd write "your" instead of "you're" just because I could.

    Great thread here, guys.

    Any speculation on who this? I wonder if there's a tax filing out there somewhere that might indicate who had the stake in this company.

    And does ISU sell this right away to cash in?

    The story said the company would be selling it.

    Hopefully this will soften the blow of the Mustache's proposed budget cuts.

    Overlooked that, my bad.

    Also, that wasn't too difficult...I think I found the donor. Shall I preserve his anonymity?

    EDIT: never mind...I'm seeing them actually giving quotes in the CR Gazette. So much for "anonymous donors." Then again, a $100M gift was never going to stay anonymous for long.

    I would say yes. Someone who is willing to donate that much to the university should have their wishes honored.
