Jerome L. Greene Foundation

The Jerome L. Greene Foundation pledged $15 million to support scholarships, public interest service, and clinical education. Created by Jerome “Jerry” L. Greene ’28 and his wife, Dawn M. Greene, the family foundation invests in opportunities that enrich and advance lives, with a focus on the arts, education, health, and social justice. Today led by Christina McInerney, who succeeded her mother Dawn as president and CEO, the foundation is a generous longtime supporter of the Law School. This pledge included a two-year, $5 million challenge that would match dollar-for-dollar 50 gifts of $100,000 each from Columbia Law alumni and friends to establish named, endowed scholarships. The challenge was successfully completed in June 2019. Read more about it here.
