Dr. & Mrs. Gordon Brown commit $2 million of estate to Sherman College

Dr. Gordon and Helen Brown of Sedona, Arizona, have recently committed $2 million of their estate to the Sherman College Endowment. At maturity, this endowment will typically generate over $100,000 each year to be used by the college for a wide range of needs. Some of these will include scholarships, chiropractic research and campus facility needs.

Dr. David Koch, president of Sherman College, said, “This gift is one of the first major estate commitments to our endowment and will play a significant role in helping us to achieve our 10 million dollar commitment goal over the next five years. All future Sherman College students will benefit from the opportunities Helen and Gordon are providing.” Helen and Gordon expressed their feelings about making this gift. “Chiropractic is how we made our living. It gave us the opportunity to have what we have today and to have made so many wonderful friends through the years. We want to help perpetuate the profession and to give something back. We have been particularly concerned that chiropractic gets so little support from outside the profession and feel we should focus our efforts to assist in whatever manner we can.”

Sherman College Vice President for Institutional Advancement Walter Dahlgren said, “We are very grateful for this commitment by Dr. and Mrs. Brown. Through the Sherman College long-term endowment program, their gift will be secure for eternity and will grow each year as part of the interest is reinvested. This is a legacy that will live forever.”
