Russell Sage College receives $4 million donation

Russell Sage College is getting a generous gift.

The president announced a donation of $4 million from alumna Donna Esteves.

The college announced the $4 million will go to services around the school that will expand their reach.

That includes renovating the French House, a historic house where female students live. The house was built between 1865 and 1896 and the president is confident the gift will help expand it.

The funds will also go toward developing multiple online master’s programs. This includes both expanding existing programs and creating new ones.
