Philanthropist Jack Schlegel and his wife Priscilla Schlegel recently gave the New College Foundation $50,000 to be used toward its "Pei for the Future" initiative, which is raising $15 million to restore dormitories on New College's campus designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei. Gifts of $1,000 of more will be matched up to $50,000. Campaign funds will be used to replace roofs, seal buildings against water intrusion, install new cooling and heating systems, renew the courtyards, and renovate and upgrade the dormitory rooms.
