Leonard Lauder Gives Hunter College $52 Million, Its Largest Gift Ever

Hunter College, part of the City University of New York (CUNY) system, has announced a $52 million gift from Leonard A. Lauder to establish the Evelyn Lauder Community Care Nurse Practitioner Program.

The largest gift in Hunter’s history and the largest to a single CUNY school was made in honor of Lauder’s late wife, Evelyn, a Hunter College High School and Hunter College alumna (’58). To help address an acute primary care nursing shortage exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will feature substantial financial support for a cohort of 25 students per year who are committed to practicing in New York City’s under-resourced communities. It also will provide additional faculty, state-of-the-art technology and equipment, and an expanded curriculum to the benefit of the wider nurse practitioner student body.

“New York City has meant the world to my family—my parents and grandparents made their lives here—and to me, and Hunter is part of our New York City story,” said Lauder, chairman emeritus of the Estée Lauder Companies. “My wife Evelyn loved Hunter and was proud to support the college throughout her life, and I honor her with this gift, to support the education of nurse practitioners who will be leaders in advancing the health of New Yorkers. I am very pleased to congratulate president [Jennifer] Raab on her leadership and thank her for her unwavering commitment to helping every Hunter student achieve success.”
