OVERVIEW OF FINDINGS
There are many educational donors in Connecticut, with many educational interests. I have included in this report a spreadsheet. From my research, some educational donors have given to organizations for fighting against economic injustice, universities, schools of business, charter schools, and technology institutes. Universities appear to be the most prominent area of educational interest and have been recipients of donations from Steven and Alexandra Cohen (Brown University), Paul Tudor Jones (University of Virginia), Karen Pritzker (Yale University), Clifford Asness(University of Chicago and University of Pennsylvania), Mario Gabelli (University of Nevada and Fordham University) and Vincent McMahon (East Carolina University and Sacred Heart University). Charter schools also receive donations from a number of the donors listed, specifically Steven and Alexandra Cohen (Achievement First Schools), Paul Tudor Jones (The Bronx Charter School for Excellence), Karen Pritzker (Foote School) and Peter Buck (Success Academy Charter Schools). For more details about these and other donations, as well as sources, please refer to the completed spreadsheet.
