Walkers put UAMS over the top

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 1:39 PM

A $3.75 million gift from the Willard and Pat Walker Charitable Foundation has allowed UAMS to more than reach its goal to match the $36 million in state funds allocated to build the new 12-story Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Center.

UAMS has raised $36.5 million in private matching funds since Jan. 1, 2007. It had until June of this year to raise the match.

 The gift, announced today, brings the total of Walker giving to UAMS over the years to a whopping $45 million.
