Donor Celebration: Donn Youngstrom Featured Speaker Series - Today
‘How Wonderful it is that we need not wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
Donn Youngstrom has lifted those words from Anne Frank’s diary and made them a reality for the Anne Frank Project today.
Mr. Youngstrom, a retired theater professor at SUNY Buffalo State, has made a generous gift of $1 million to the Anne Frank Project. With this amazing donation, Mr. Youngstrom has single-handedly extended the reach of AFP’s programming locally, nationally, and internationally. Specifically, the Donn Youngstrom gift will provide additional AFP staffing (in perpetuity), a state-of-the art remote learning and teaching laboratory, and a distinguished speaker series bearing his name. Mr. Youngstrom’s extreme altruism will equip AFP with the tools to help bring us closer to Anne Frank’s audacious dream of an ‘improved world.’
Please join me and the Anne Frank Project in celebrating the start of the Donn Youngstrom Featured Speaker series for upcoming AFP Social Justice Festivals today, October 13, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Campbell Student Union Social Hall. Light refreshments will be served.
